The Swedish Heart and Vascular Institute is presenting a series of heart health seminars in October, and two of them will take place on the Swedish/Edmonds campus. The schedule includes:
Thursday, Oct. 13:
Management of Carotid Artery Disease and Stroke Prevention
Diseases of the arteries, veins and lymph vessels affect about 10 million people aged 50 or older, and are the leading cause of disability in the
United States. Hear a vascular expert talk about diagnosis and treatment of these diseases and when you should seek medical care.
Thursday, Oct. 20:
Preventing Heart Disease & Stroke: An Opportunity to Make a Difference
What is “good cholesterol”? How does high blood pressure affect my health? What do my numbers mean? Get answers to these and all your questions as Swedish cardiologists explain how your health status is measured and how we determine risk for future heart conditions.
All lectures take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Friends and family are welcome but seating is limited, so each person is asked to register separately at swedish.org/heart-lectures or by calling 1-800-SWEDISH.
