Watch for information about the 2019 Her Story, Her Heart event.
This event is for women or anyone who has a woman in their life. Listen to women share personal experiences with heart attack, bypass surgery, chronic chest pain, cardiac rehab and more. It’s powerful to hear from others who may be like yourself, your mother or grandmother about what they faced and the help they found. Attendees are invited to ask questions from a medical expert panel consisting of a cardiologist, nurse practitioners and a heart surgeon.
Enjoy a free evening with healthy treats, music and prizes.
