Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a condition where the heart is not able
to pump blood well enough to function as effectively as it should. It
can be caused by any number of things and, as a result, has many different
courses of treatment. It is one of the most common reasons for hospitalization
in people over the age of 65. Fortunately, CHF can be managed and detected—if
you know what you’re looking for. To learn more, join us for a free
seminar led by John Winterton, MD.

Center. In addition to general cardiology, Dr. Winterton is also an expert
