Abrazo Health hosts cardiology event at Desert Foothills YMCA

Abrazo Health is marking American Heart Month by presenting an Ask-A-Cardiologist event at Desert Foothills Family YMCA.

The public is invited to hear Abrazo physicians talk about heart disease risks, prevention and treatment on Feb. 15 from 8:30–10:30 a.m. at 34250 N. 60th St. in Scottsdale.

February is American Heart Month, and cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death in the United States, the press release stated. The fact that the majority of Americans don’t consider themselves at risk for heart disease is why educating the community on the importance of heart health is so important.

Smoking, poor diet, high stress, obesity, diabetes and a sedentary lifestyle are all things that can contribute to heart disease, the release explained. Left unchecked, it can lead to a wide array of serious and life-threatening health complications, including heart failure, heart attack, stroke and death. 

Scheduled speakers for the free Feb. 15 event include Abrazo Health cardiologists Dr. Christian Lopez and Dr. William Jaffe.
