Brad Kirscher, Dr. Nyonbeor Boley
Dr. George Krienke introduced our Health Day speaker, our own member, Dr. Nyonbeor Boley an esteemed physician in cardiology.  Dr. Boley's resume is very impressive.  He was born in Liberia and was trained at Harvard as a physician in 1995 with an emphasis on cardiology.  He practiced at Mass General and in Virginia.  He is currently in the midst of setting up a non-profit to help with cardiology care in 3rd world countries where the need is very great.  He gave us some interesting statistics:
  • Cardiology as we know if started around 1900
  • Over 2000 people per day die from heard attacks – more than strokes
  • Previously there were more men than women victim but currently there are more women than men affected.
  • The heart starts beating 14 days after implantation.
  • The 2 biggest risk factors for heart disease are smoking and weight.
Dr. Boyer’s sage advice to us to live a long healthy life was to follow:
  • 5 servings of fruits / vegetables daily
  • 10 miles of walking (more like 20,000 steps per day!)
  • 8 hours of sleep each night
  • Thank you, Dr. Boyer, for a great talk and take away of some simple but hard goals to achieve each day for a long life!  We are fortunate to have such a knowledgeable member in our group.
