Maury Regional Women's Center offers free heart health luncheon seminar

 

COLUMBIA, Tenn. – The Maury Regional Women’s Center will host a free Women Helping Women luncheon program on Thursday, February 27, at noon, in the Auxiliary Conference Room at Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC). In recognition of February as Heart Month, the program will focus on women’s heart health.

Dr. Janice M. Vinson, a cardiologist with Vanderbilt Heart-Columbia, will present a seminar titled “Fascinating Rhythm.” 

A healthy woman’s heart beats approximately 100,000 times each day. These expansions and contractions allow the heart to pump an estimated 2,000 gallons of blood throughout the body. At times, however, the heart’s rhythm can change.

Dr. Vinson will provide an overview of the way the heart beats. She will also discuss certain medical conditions that can cause the heart’s rhythm to change and how these changes can lead to serious conditions, including stroke.

The public is invited to attend this event. Lunch will be provided. Reservations must be made by calling 931.381.1111, extension 2445.

 

Women Helping Women is a free lunch and learn series that addresses health issues facing women today.
