New England Baptist Hospital (NEBH) was a proud sponsor of the annual Boston Heart Walk on September 7, 2013.
A fundraising effort at the hospital along with the NEBH walking team of over 50 members, led by Dr. Frederick Basilico, Chair of the Department of Medicine and Chief of Cardiology, raised over $11,000 to support the American Heart Association.
NEBH, as the official Hospital of the Boston Celtics, was happy to bring Rajon Rondo and team mascot Lucky to the event to sign basketballs for walkers and supporters.
In honor of the Heart Walk, below are 5 heart healthy tips from Dr. Basilico.
