Hollywood Cardiologist Launches “Heart & Sole” Project
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — In observance of February as National Heart Month, cardiologist Adam Splaver, MD, FACC, FACP, FASE, launched the “Heart & Sole” project. His practice, NanoHealth Associates, will spearhead the collection of donated new and worn shoes throughout the month to benefit Shoes for the Cure, a professional recycling company that specializes in collecting used footwear for recycling and new footwear for donation.
As a physician who believes the heart is the epicenter of each patient’s overall health, Dr. Splaver and his staff encourage area residents and businesses to consider the donation of athletic shoes in order to promote heart-healthy exercises and activities among area youth.
“I believe in being proactive, preventing disease whenever I can rather than just treating it reactively,” Dr. Splaver says. “My prescription for health is a collaborative effort — educating people about diet, exercise and environmental factors in conjunction with the best practices of traditional and complementary medicine to reduce risk factors and promote healthier patients.”
With a focus on improving health and benefiting the environment, NanoHealth Associates’ “Heart & Sole” campaign quickly attracted two partner organizations: Youfit Health Club Hollywood, where Dr. Splaver regularly works out, and Weinbaum Yeshiva High School in Boca Raton, which embraces a legacy of community outreach. He partnered with Shoes for the Cure because their philosophy was so consistent with his goal and their tagline “Have a soul, give a sole, save a sole, really resonated with him.”
Throughout February, “Shoes for the Cure” collection bins will be set up at all locations to accept donations of new or worn shoes, slipper, boots and sneakers. NanoHealth Associates is located at 3700 Washington Street, Suite 400, Hollywood, FL 33021. Youfit Health Clubs Hollywood’s address is 3120 Oakwood Blvd., Hollywood, FL 33020. Weinbaum Yeshiva High School is located at 7902 Montoya Circle, Boca Raton, FL 33433. When the collection ends on March 1, a check will be mailed to the American Heart Association based on the weight of shoes collected.
“I’m thrilled to have the support of Youfit Health Clubs, Young Israel of Hollywood and Weinbaum Yeshiva High so, together, we can spread word about the importance of good heart health in our daily lives, and support a worthwhile organization,” Dr. Splaver notes.
