Early in the spring of 2009 the buzz and excitement of the grand opening of Oklahoma’s largest dedicated heart hospital filled the halls of the newly constructed Oklahoma Heart Institute. The wall of windows on the south side of the building brought in new light to the Hillcrest campus and new hope for patients in Oklahoma seeking the best cardiac care in our region.
With the Tulsa Run coming up October 27, we asked Oklahoma Heart Institute cardiologist, Dr. Kyle Zimmerman to share training tips and what it takes to balance life, work and running. Dr. Zimmerman will be running the 15k this year, but he doesn't just train once a year. The decision to become a runner became a lifestyle makeover for Dr. Zimmerman.
