Main St. The guest speaker is Dr. Alex Heintzelman of St. Elizabeth Hospital. The Rev. Dr. Rob Joy of Grace Church is the organizer. Dr. Joy was the victim of a massive heart attack in February 2010. He survived and has recovered thanks to the care of many professionals, especially the emergency room staff at Salem Community Hospital and the cardiac rehab personnel at Salem. Unfortunately, that program has since been terminated. While the support group is not a substitute for a rehab program, the goals are to disseminate helpful information and offer emotional support to those struggling with heart health issues. For information contact Dr. Joy at 330-892-0512 or 330-277-6640.
