On Tuesday, September 1, Newport Hospital to Host Community Lecture about How to Live with Heart Failure
August 24, 2015
From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 1, Newport Hospital will host the next in its series of free community lectures entitled, “Living Well with Heart Failure.” George T. Charlton, MD, of The Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) at Rhode Island, The Miriam and Newport hospitals, will lead a discussion of risk factors for heart failure and ways people with heart failure can improve their heart health and continue to live comfortably.
“Heart failure is a serious, chronic condition that requires responsible self care,” said Charlton, “but with proper management and attention to lifestyle choices, heart failure patients live longer and more independently than ever before.”
The Newport Hospital lecture series is an educational resource for the community and an opportunity for interaction with hospital clinicians. The September 1 lecture, open to individuals who may be at risk for developing heart failure and those currently living with heart failure, will take place in Newport Hospital’s Gudoian Conference Room, located just off the main lobby of the hospital at 11 Friendship Street, Newport. Registration is not required and seating is limited. To reserve a seat, call 401-845-1492.
