If you have questions about heart disease, treatment options and how to keep your heart fit and healthy, Griffin Hospital has the answers.
Griffin Hospital will host “Heart-to-Heart,” an open forum with Cardiologist Martin Plavec, MD, and Griffin Hospital’s Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation Eunice Lisk, MS, at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26 in the hospital’s Meditation/Learning Center at 130 Division Street in Derby. These two heart experts will provide easy-to-understand information about warning signs for heart problems and what you can do to help prevent them. They will also discuss common heart issues, like Congestive Heart Failure and high blood pressure, how to get tested for heart disease, and discuss the benefits and risks of treatment options.
The forum is in recognition of National Heart Awareness Month. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women, but heart disease is preventable and controllable.
The presentation is part of Griffin Hospital's Healthy U “Tuesday Talks,” a series of free wellness talks featuring Griffin Hospital medical experts and community partners providing trusted health information and answers to questions on a wide range of topics. Light refreshments will be served.
