The hospital also is offering two health screenings in honor of Healthy Heart Month.

Both events occur at the hospital. For more information, call 734-246-6057.

Doctors from the entire Henry Ford Health System also are taking their heart messages to the airwaves throughout the month.

Eight, 30-second video vignettes featuring Henry Ford doctors are running throughout February on WDIV-TV Channel 4.

Two of the eight spots feature Wyandotte doctors.

In his video, Dr. Abdulwahhab Alroaini talks about the symptoms of a heart attack, including chest pain, shortness of breath, jaw pain, left arm pain or upset stomach.

Dr. Ibrahim Abu-Romeh uses his video to discuss the risks of smoking, saying that it "increases the risk of heart attack at least three times."
