“SUCCESS WITH FAILURE: MANAGING YOUR CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE” FREE LECTURE FOR SENIORS
Heart failure is a condition in which the heart works less efficiently because it cannot pump enough blood to the body’s other organs. And, it is possible to have the condition and not realize it.
To learn about heart failure, the public is invited to attend Winthrop-University Hospital’s free Health Update for Seniors community education program, “Success with Failure: Managing Your Congestive Heart Failure,” on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 1:15 PM. The program begins with the lecture and will be followed by blood pressure checks at 2:45 PM.
Justine S. Lachmann, MD, Director of the Congestive Heart Failure Program at Winthrop, who was also recognized as one of Castle Connelly’s Top Doctors for cardiovascular disease, will discuss the symptoms and causes of heart failure, how it is diagnosed, and treatment programs that can help manage the condition. A question and answer period will follow the lecture.
Seating is limited and reservations are required. To reserve a space, please call (516) 663-3916.
