HCH Hosting Workshop on Women and Cardiovascular Disease
January 23, 2019
CADIZ – “Women and Cardiovascular Disease” is the topic of the next Lunch & Learn workshop Feb. 7 at Harrison Community Hospital (HCH).
Community Nurse Educator Carol A. Teter, RN, will lead the discussion.
“Attendees will learn how heart disease in women can be different from that of men,” Teter said. “For example, some women don’t experience the classic chest pain that we have been told may signal a heart attack. This may cause a woman to delay seeking the immediate medical attention she needs.”
Women’s heart attack symptoms can be subtle, and the workshop will outline some of the symptoms.
Scheduled for noon-1 p.m. in the HCH cafeteria, the program will include information on women’s heart attack symptoms, which can sometimes be subtle.
Lunch & Learn Workshops are always held on the first Thursday of every month except December. Attendees may bring their lunch or buy one in the cafeteria. A snack and beverages will be provided. Reservations are not needed.
The March 7 workshop topic will be Lyme disease. Veterinarian Dr. Scott Pendleton will provide information on the Lone Star Tick, now in this area. Other species that have already arrived or are expected, along with the diseases they carry, also will be discussed.
HCH is a division of Wheeling Hospital.
