Heart Valve Awareness Day Event
Please attend our free heart valve education event!
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.
Please join our free public education event to learn about:
•The public health epidemic of heart valve disease
•How heart valve disease is diagnosed
•The latest in heart valve disease research and treatments
•What you can do to help
