Iredell Health System to Hold 3rd Annual Cardiovascular Forum

02/22/2016


Iredell Health System, in partnership with Northwest Area Health Education Center, will hold its 3rd Annual Cardiovascular Forum on Thursday, March 10 at the Statesville Civic Center.


The forum is designed to provide cutting-edge information to increase the health care professional’s knowledge of current cardiovascular issues confronting providers caring for cardiac patients across the continuum of care. It is intended for nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, ancillary staff, registered cardiovascular invasive specialists (RCIS), emergency medical technicians and registered radiological technicians (RTR).


Over 71 million American adults have been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is the second-leading cause of death for men and women in North Carolina. In addition to behavioral risk factors, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes are other known risk factors for heart disease.


The forum is an all-day event, beginning at 8:15 and concluding at 4:30 pm. It includes a continental breakfast and lunch. For more information or to register, go to www.northwestahec.org.
