Hunterdon Healthcare, the corporate parent of Hunterdon Medical Center, launched the Ornish Program in 2016. It addresses the root causes of heart disease rather than just its symptoms, and offers participants what can be a more appealing option than surgery: lifestyle as treatment.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is the second-largest cause of death in Hunterdon.

The dinner will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. The restaurant is located at 49 Main Street.

Cost is $32.23 per person. Space is limited and registration is required. To register, visit ornishdinner.eventbrite.com
