To view/download slides shown during this lecture, please click here.

We’ve all heard the shocking reports — an athlete or physically active person collapses from a heart condition and cannot be revived. Each tragedy reminds us how important it is to identify heart problems early.

Come hear Drs. Samuel Aznaurov and Molly Ware, experts in treating all types of cardiovascular disease, describe changes to the heart that occur with exercise and whether certain symptoms — fainting, breathlessness, or chest pain — are normal or signal a life-threatening medical issue. Then learn about heart-related problems that impact athletes, including COVID-19 concerns, and the latest treatment options.
