What’s New in Cardiology?

healthy heartHow much do you really know about heart care? While we hear so much about heart disease in the media, the information provided and the studies reported on are often contradictory and may not apply to us. That’s because heart disease, also called cardiovascular disease or coronary heart disease, is a simple term that is used to describe several problems.

As a result, this information overload can leave you confused about what’s really important and accurate for your overall health and wellness.

February’s Miracle of Living lecture will increase your heart care knowledge by focusing on some current critical information. By updating your knowledge, you will be better able to take good care of your heart and seek appropriate medical treatment when or if it’s needed.
