FHOM Presents Women's Heart Summit -- Feb. 10
WHO: Beth Bartholomew, MD, cardiologist. Dr. Bartholomew will speak about women and heart disease, including risk factors, symptoms and what can be done to reduce your chance of developing the nation’s number one killer of women.
WHAT: Women and Heart Disease Presentation
WHY: Heart disease is the #1 killer of American women, claiming more than 500,000 lives a year. And, another 8 million of us live daily with the disease. Heart disease kills twice as many women in the United States each year than all forms of cancer. In fact, one in every two women will eventually die from heart-related diseases, while one in 25 will die from breast cancer. These are staggering statistics, but the good news is that unless you were born with heart problems, making a few lifestyle changes can add years to your life.
To learn how, join us for a complimentary and informative breakfast on Feb. 10.
WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 10 – 8 a.m. registration; 8:30 a.m. program
WHERE: Oceanside Country Club, 75 N. Halifax Ave., Ormond Beach
TO REGISTER: Call 386.671.5090. Seating is limited and reservations are required.
