What: Through a generous community grant from Edwards Lifesciences, part of their Every Heart Beat Matters campaign, Hoag, Share Our Selves Community Health Center, SOS-El Sol Wellness Center and Edwards Lifesciences will be hosting a free Heart Screening event on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3 at the City of Santa Ana’s Cinco de Mayo Weekend Festival, in downtown Santa Ana.
