Baystate Wing Hospital to Hold ‘Heart to Heart’ Lecture for Women on Feb. 27

PALMER — Area women are invited to attend “Heart to Heart,” an educational seminar offered by Grace LaValley, DNP, AGACNP-BC. The event will be held on Thursday, Feb. 27 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Baystate Wing Hospital in the Snow Conference Room.

“In so many ways, the heart of a woman is strong and resilient, yet heart disease is the number-one health risk for women,” said Susan Fontaine, senior coordinator of Loyalty Programs at Baystate Health. “Grace will offer information about heart health and explain the signs and symptoms, as well as treatment for heart disease.”

The Heart to Heart seminar is sponsored by Baystate Health Every Woman, a free program that offers the latest women’s health information from physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals.

 “You are never too young or too old to learn about your risk factors for heart disease and do something to minimize them,” said LaValley, who joins Dr. Brian Laliberte, chair of Cardiology, Dr. Zachary Zichittella, and Gina Zichittella, nurse practitioner, providing comprehensive cardiology care at Baystate Cardiology, located at Baystate Wing Hospital, 40 Wright St., Palmer.

The Heart to Heart seminar is offered at no cost, and a light dinner will be provided. Registration is required by calling (413) 794-5200 or visiting hearttoheartbwh.eventbrite.com.
