Free Seminar: Keeping the Beat: Pacemakers and Defibrillators

About This Event

  • Event Type:Seminar

When the heart’s own natural systems for setting a regular pace don’t function properly, these are considered “electrical” cardiac problems known as arrhythmias. These can cause the heart to beat too rapidly, too slowly or even skip beats.

To learn more about two of the most common treatment options for when the heart is going haywire – pacemakers and defibrillators – join Dr. Kevin R. Young, a cardiologist with Memorial Medical Group, for Keeping the Beat, a free seminar being held on Friday, September 29 at 12 noon in the Shearman Conference Room, located on the first floor of Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard.

Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance, and a light lunch will be provided. For more information or to reserve your seat, click Register below or call (337) 494-2936. If you cannot make it, you can also watch this seminar live by visiting www.lcmh/watch.
