FLEMINGTON, NJ – Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But science shows that heart disease can be both prevented and reversed.

HMC and HealthQuest of Hunterdon will host a special program about the Ornish program on Thursday, Oct. 17 from noon to 1 p.m. in Healthquest’s Adult Lounge.
