Free Seminar: Success in Spite of Congestive Heart Failure

Dr. WintertonCongestive 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.
