Recognizing and Treating Heart Failure
Free Health Lecture
Nearly 6 million Americans suffer from heart failure, a serious condition that occurs when your heart can’t pump enough blood to the rest of your body. Yet many people are unaware they have this potentially fatal condition because some of the most common symptoms—such as shortness of breath and fatigue—are often mistaken for normal signs of aging.
Our speaker is Dr. Scott Blois, who is a board certified expert in diagnosing and treating heart failure. He will describe the signs of heart failure and provide an update on the latest treatment options.
