Stories of a Healthy Heart
February 22, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation for a free virtual education event!
In honor of Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day, Stories of a Healthy Heart is an interactive webinar that will provide an overview of valvular heart disease, highlight a fascinating patient journey, and finish off with a Q&A panel discussion. This is a unique opportunity for you to ask leading physicians and researchers your own heart valve questions!
Why is heart valve disease a public health crisis?
Although heart valve disease affects as many as 11 million Americans, many people have never heard of it. Heart valve disease is estimated to affect 1 in 10 people ages 75+, and age is the greatest risk factor. Unfortunately, symptoms are often dismissed as a “normal” part of aging. It’s crucial that you recognize specific risks and symptoms. This webinar will help you feel more informed!
Join to learn more about:
• The public health epidemic of heart valve disease
• The latest in heart valve disease research and treatments
• Inspiring stories of life after heart valve disease treatment
