The Ins and Outs of a Healthy Heart: A Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day Event

Saturday, February 18, 2023 at 11:30am - 1:15pm
Olympic Hills Golf Club, 10625 Mt. Curve Rd, Eden Prairie, MN 55347

Join us in raising awareness for Heart Valve Disease (HVD). As many as 11.6 million Americans are estimated to have heart valve disease, and each year around 25,000 people die from this disease. Fortunately, HVD can usually be successfully treated in patients of all ages.

But successful treatment depends on understanding risk factors, recognizing symptoms, and getting timely treatment. Unfortunately, three out of four Americans report knowing little to nothing about the disease. It's crucial that you recognize specific risks and symptoms!
