The heart-healthy tips focus on eating habits, exercise, smoking cessation -
which also makes kissing all the more enjoyable - and stress reduction.
"A video Valentine seemed like the perfect vehicle for this message," said

HealthCare System is committed to community education and promoting healthy living
at every stage of life. On a day when everyone is thinking of hearts, what
better time could there be to remind people to keep their hearts healthy?"
The Docapella quartet in the video includes three physicians on staff at PHCS:
John F. Hagaman, a specialist in cardiovascular disease; Victor D. Iturbides,
an internist; and Robert "Buzz" Berger, a radiologist. The fourth singer in the
video, Fred Hughson, Ph.D., is a molecular biology professor at Princeton
