Join medical specialists at the 360° Health Management Seminar next month as they offer special insights into managing the health of your heart, eyes, ears, nose, throat and liver.

Dr Michael Lim, a senior consultant physician and cardiologist at the Heart, Stroke & Cancer Centre in Paragon, will give a talk, titled How To Make It Almost Impossible To Get A Heart Attack.

Heart attacks can strike without warning and can lead to severe health problems. But there are steps that you can take to prevent one.

You can also learn how to take care of your liver from Dr Loh Poh Yen, a consultant in gastroenterology and herpetology (stomach and intestine) at the Singapore Medical Specialists Centre (SMSC) in Paragon.

Dr Loh will share information on how lifestyle and diets can affect the functioning of the liver, which could lead to chronic liver disease.
