Valley Medical Group’s Benita Burke, M.D., Named Chair of the Bergen Passaic Heart Walk

AHA-AWARDS-3

Valley Medical Group’s Benita Burke, M.D., Named Chair of the Bergen Passaic Heart Walk

February 24, 2014 — Cardiologist Benita Burke, M.D., Medical Director of Valley Medical Group’s Heart Care for Women practice, has been named the Chair of the 2014 Bergen Passaic Heart Walk.

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s signature fundraising event.  It is a community celebration that encourages people to get active while raising funds to support the mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

The 2014 Bergen Passaic Heart Walk will take place on the morning of Sunday, June 8, in Van Saun Park, Paramus.  For more information and to register online, please visit www.bergenpassaicheartwalk.org.

“I am pleased to be part of this important event,” Dr. Burke said.  “Partnership with the American Heart Association (AHA) seemed like a natural fit as both the AHA and Heart Care for Women share the same passion: to empower women to take control of their heart health to reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease.”

Valley has been a longstanding supporter and participant in the annual Heart Walk and recently received three recognition awards for participation in last year’s Meadowland’s Heart Walk. Valley’s Center for Women’s Heart Health (now part of Heart Care for Women) was named the top Fundraising Team; Pamela Pate, administrative assistant, The Valley Hospital Heart and Vascular Institute, was named a Fundraising Walker; and the Center for Heart Health (now Heart Care for Women) received the Lifestyle Change Sponsor Award.

Valley Medical Group’s Heart Care for Women’s all-female cardiology group provides specialized services for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease in women.  Because there are differences in the signs and symptoms of heart disease in women can be different than men’s, it is important to have specialists experienced in the treatment female patients.  To make an appointment with one of the cardiologists please call 201 444-1587.

The Heart Care for Women Screening Program also offers a free heart risk assessment to identify potential risks for heart disease so that women can take steps toward prevention.  For more information about the Screening Program please call 201-447-8535.

Valley Medical Group is a multispecialty group practice comprising more than 200 doctors and advanced practice professionals representing more than 30 medical and surgical specialties who practice at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, Valley’s Blumenthal Cancer Center in Paramus, eight urgent and primary care centers in New Jersey and New York, and community-based physician practices throughout the region.  Valley Medical Group is part of Valley Health System, which includes The Valley Hospital and Valley Home Care.
