The Cardio Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center hosted its annual holiday luncheon at Two Rivers Steak & Fish House in Pasadena on January 2. The program helps heart and lung patients rehabilitate after experiencing a heart attack or similar medical trauma. The event celebrated the accomplishments of those in the program, and the staff presented the patients with certificates listing different superlatives, such as who makes the best cookies. The luncheon also allowed the staff to recognize those in the program as “people, not just patients,” said Claudia Cavey, who runs the program. The event has been held for more than 20 years and more than 100 people attended this year, Cavey said. At the luncheon, everyone is focused on camaraderie, having fun and enjoying the meal.

“They’re living life the way they’re supposed to,” Cavey said of her patients returning to their normal lives after recovering from heart attacks or other health complications.
