BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge General (BRG) is hosting their third Lunch and Learn event of 2018. The upcoming event, scheduled for Wednesday, April 11, will focus on heart health education.

Cardiologist Dr. Garland Green will give tips for taking care of your heart. He'll give guests a simple breakdown of 10 tried-and-true habits to keep your heart healthy.

"It's easy to get overwhelmed with improving our health – especially if we try to tackle cholesterol, blood pressure, exercise, weight, carbs and sodium all at once," said Dr. Green, interventional cardiologist with Cardiovascular Institute of the South.
