3/11/2015 - Heart Health Symposium 2015-Beat your Atrial Fibrillation

Join us for our annual Heart Health Symposium Symposium.

Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat that increases the risk of stroke and heart disease. Signs may include dizziness, weakness, and low energy. Treatment involves medication and lifestyle changes, and sometimes medical procedures such cardioversion, ablation or pacemakers.

Sarah Colias, RN, specializes in cardiovascular rehabilitation and will discuss how risk factors for heart disease contribute to atrial fibrillation. Sarah will also share how exercise and lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of heart disease or slow its progression.
