St. John's Regional Medical Center will hold its annual "A Fair of the Heart," Jan. 31 at John Q. Hammons Trade Center in Joplin.

As in the past, health care professionals from St. John's Center for Heart Care and affiliated groups will have booths for attendees to stop by and gather information about heart-healthy care, including diet, exercise and heart-disease prevention. Seminars will also be held at the Trade Center, offering a variety of topics related to heart care and healthy living.

Seminars include: "Heart Disease and Weight Management," "Your Heart and Diabetes," "Sleep Disorders and Your Heart" and "Stroke: What You Need to Know." People may visit with health care professionals as they go through a full range of screenings, such as cholesterol and blood pressure.

All activities are free and open to the public.
