PALMER —  Atrial fibrillation (AFib) affects more than 2 million people in the U.S. and is the most common type of irregular heart rhythm, or arrhythmia.

The community is invited to attend an educational seminar about AFib on Wednesday, July 31 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Baystate Wing Hospital in the Snow Conference Room.

“There are a number of different treatment options for patients with AFib to help them live a normal life,” said Dr. Zachary Zichittella, cardiologist at Baystate Wing Cardiology, noting that the program will offer information about AFib, as well as signs and symptoms, associated risk factors, and treatment options. 

Zichittella joins Dr. Brian Laliberte, chair of Cardiology, and Gina Zichittella, nurse practitioner, providing comprehensive cardiology care at Baystate Wing Cardiology located at Baystate Wing Hospital, 40 Wright St., Palmer.
