MISSOULA - Over 900 people followed their hearts down to the annual Providence Heart Expo today at St Patrick Hospital in Missoula.

Although it wasn't scheduled to open until 7 a.m., people began lining up at around 6:30 this morning to get their blood tested. The expo was free, and offered other low cost screenings.  

The event also featured lectures, demonstrations and informational displays. Organizers say it's a great opportunity for the community to get accurate heart healthy information from reliable doctors and health professionals. 

One volunteer who has been a part of the expo for 10 years now says the lectures are one of the best parts of the day.

"They're all very informative. I think it's the best hospital around and I wouldn't go anywhere else myself, so it's been a great time. Every year I come and it's always been a good experience. And it's just a good mix. You get a good overall picture of what happens here," volunteer Tim Gaertner said.

Today marked the twelfth year that Saint Patrick Hospital has put on the Heart Expo.
