Dr. Kwaku Oppong, M.D. of Spectra Health will present a special program on heart health to members of the ICF branch at St. Bede the Venerable Roman Catholic Church on Tuesday, April 23 at 6:30 p.m. The Italian Catholic Federation meeting is a potluck dinner and attendees are urged to bring a favorite dish to share. The meeting will be held in the John XIII Room in the Parish center at St. Bede.
While Dr. Oppong was attending medical school, he and his wife often discussed a shared dream of fulfilling the need of providing healthcare services that treat the mind, body and spirit in an accessible yet balanced way. After graduation, this dream became a reality when they began, Spectra Health Services™, Inc. (SHS™, Inc.). The same desire that drove their focus years ago was and is the same today – to approach health and wellness in a holistic manner to best serve others.
Dr. Oppong was born in Ghana, West Africa and immigrated to the United States at the age of 2. While growing up in Milwaukee, Wisc., he developed a passion for improving the lives of others around him, and the community as a whole.
His approach to heart health will be subject of his talk and discussion and interested community members are invited to attend.
RSVP should be made to (818) 952-1969.
St. Bede is located at 215 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada Flintridge.
