WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Anthony Mercando, MD, a cardiologist at NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group/Westchester, teamed up with NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital’s Executive Chef Kumar Mitra and Nutrition Manager Rich Doscher for a presentation on cooking and eating your way to a healthy heart, on Thursday, Feb. 25 at the hospital in Bronxville.
The three prepared a heart-healthy meal of sea bass with a side of asparagus, a couscous salad and healthy apple cobbler dessert for a full crowd. Dr. Mercando also gave a presentation on healthy eating and cardiac health.
The event sold out so quickly, that the hospital decided to host a second occurrence of the event on Thursday, March 3. For more information on NYP/Lawrence’s Dinner with the Doctor series, visit nyplawrence.org.
