An interactive forum to focus on women and cardiac health.
Visalia, CA – 210 Connect is partnering with Kaweah Delta to help
you get expert answers to health questions with a free cardiac health
forum titled “Be Heart Smart.” The interactive forum will
take place on Monday, February 8th, 2016 starting at 6:00 p.m. to be held
at GateWay Church in Visalia and moderated by journalist Paul Hurley.
This informative and supportive community health event will feature a
panel of health experts and community members who will provide a comprehensive
picture of heart disease– from prevention to diagnose, linked health
concerns including stroke and stress, as well as recommended nutrition
This event focuses on making women's heart health a top priority during
Go Red for Women - Heart Disease Awareness Month in February. “Women
often make the health decisions in the home,” explains cardiologist
Dr. Harry R. Lively. “Too often they are so busy taking care of
others that they don’t focus on themselves. Also, most women are
not aware that their symptoms of a heart attack can be very different
than in men.” Women and men are invited and encouraged to ask health
questions to the panel and join in the discussion.
Panelist includes: Dr. Teresa P. Daniele, cardiologist; Dr. Kevin L. Ferguson,
director of the Stroke Program at Kaweah Delta; Ed Richert, director of
the Employee Assistance Program at Kaweah Delta; Captain Teresa Lovero,
firefighter at Visalia Fire Department; and Leane Sapad-Trevino, registered
dietitian at Kaweah Delta.
Also, a special personal testimonial will be delivered by Judy Araque to
commence the event.
GateWay Church is located at 1100 South Sowell Street in Visalia. Light
refreshments will be provided. For more formation, please call 559-624-2463
