More than 50 people battled the slick roads and rough weather to attend the Love Your Heart Cardiac Clinic at Knoxville Hospital and Clinics Friday morning. Public Relations Director Katrina Nelson says that at 5:30, people were already waiting for the clinic to begin. Once 6:00 came around, the clinic became swamped with a number of people. Those who attended were able to get their blood pressure checked, receive lipid screenings, and a variety of other cardiac procedures. The Love Your Heart cardiac clinic is an annual event put on in conjunction with heart health month.
