Next session of cardiovascular wellness program begins Aug. 1

Maui Memorial Medical Center will offer its next session of the comprehensive community cardiovascular wellness program Malama Pu’uwai (Take Care of Your Heart) at Kalama Heights at 101 Kanani Road in Kihei.

The new series will begin Aug. 1 and run Thursdays through Sept. 5 from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

The six-week program is free and open to the public, but registration is required and space is limited.

The Malama Pu’uwai program focuses on education, healthy food choices, exercise, screening and referrals. The program is aimed at promoting wellness through early detection and modification of cardiovascular disease risk factors.

Participants must commit to a six-week program with meetings held once per week for two-and-a-half hours. After the six-week program, follow-ups will be done.

A healthy meal is offered at each session, which is sponsored by the Maui Memorial Medical Center Foundation.
