Heart Smart in Freeport (EVENT IS FULL)
May 13, 4:30 p.m.

Although many think of heart disease as an issue for men, in reality, half of all women die of heart-related illnesses. With this in mind, SwedishAmerican will host a heart health program at the Freeport Country Club, 1614 S. Park Boulevard, in Freeport, Illinois.

At 5:00 p.m., Stuart Kopps, SwedishAmerican cardiac Rehab, will present a heart healthy cooking demonstration. At 5:30 p.m. Lisa Larson, APN, will introduce Dr. John Myers, Surgeon, SwedishAmerican Medical Group/Cardiothoracic Surgery who will discuss the progression in the care of heart disease. Then Dr. Mohammad Kizilbash, Cardiologist, SwedishAmerican Medical Group/Midwest Heart Specialists will discuss the signs and symptoms of heart disease, risk factors, the disease process, treatment options and diabetes. A question-and-answer period and a survivor’s story will follow.

Be sure to arrive at 4:30 p.m. to browse our informative heart care exhibits. A light meal and beverages will be served and door prizes will be awarded. Everyone who attends is entered into the drawing for a chance to win an iPad!

You may register online for this free program, or call SwedishAmerican HealthConnect at 1-800-996-9954. Register yourself and be sure to bring your spouse or a guest! Co-sponsored by the SwedishAmerican Foundation.
