Antioxidants…we hear about them in the news. But exactly what are they? Are they as beneficial as we may think and how do they impact our heart-health? To learn the answers to these and other questions, the community is invited to attend Winthrop-University Hospital’s Inspiring Women: The Women’s Wellness Initiative free program, “Red Wine, Dark Chocolate & Almonds,” on Tuesday, February 28, 2012. The seminar will be held at the Winthrop Community Outreach Center, located at 101 Mineola Boulevard, at the corner of Second Street in Mineola.
