To that end, DeKalb Regional Medical Center helping organize a free community event and Heart Walk with local community businesses and leaders.

Dr. Wael Halaseh, Interventional Cardiologist at DeKalb Regional Medical Center, knows firsthand the success patients can have when given education regarding cardiac health and warning signs. He has a group of patients he likes to call his “10%ers” that, with cardiac intervention and life style change, not only survived but have dramatically improved their quality of life. It is his desire that everyone in our community receive education so that they, too, can take the first step in improving their health.
