Heart Health Discussion for Women Planned in Manchester
Clinicians from Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) will present ‘Don’t Miss a Beat’ at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2, at the Manchester Community Library. This special talk by women for women aims to provide a better understanding of heart disease and to help women lower their risk.
Heart disease is the number one killer of women, causing one in three deaths each year. Misconceptions among women about heart disease puts them at greater risk. The talk will cover the types of heart disease, factors that put women at the greatest risk, how to prevent heart-related issues, recognizing the women-specific symptoms of a heart attack, treatment and recovery. The program will close with questions and answers. Heart healthy refreshments will be offered. The program will be presented by Jennifer Thuermer of SVMC Cardiology and Patricia Ryan from The Cardiac Rehabilitation program at SVMC. Eileen Murray, a patient of SVMC Cardiology and a former participant in the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at SVMC, will attend to share her story as well.
