A Sweet Heart

Dr. Joel Schneider, a cardiologist with Wake Heart & Vascular Associates, recently received a pleasant surprise from his patient, Gloria Whitley of Nashville, NC.

 Whitley presented Dr. Schneider with a sweet potato in the shape of an anatomically correct heart!

“When I gave it to Dr. Schneider, his eyes lit up like a Christmas tree,” said Whitley.  “He asked me if he could keep it, and I said ‘Absolutely, it’s a gift.”  The hearty sweet potato was grown in Nash County.  

Look for the sweet potato in the next issue of Heart to Heart, a magazine for heart patients and friends of the WakeMed Heart Center.
