PALMER — Atrial fibrillation (AFib) affects more than 2 million people in the U.S. and is the most common type of irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia).
Back by popular demand, the community is invited to attend an educational seminar about AFib on Monday, Nov. 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Snow Conference Room at Baystate Wing Hospital.
“There are a number of different treatment options for patients with AFib to help them live a normal life,” said Dr. Zachry Zichittella, cardiologist at Baystate Wing Cardiology, who will offer information about AFib, as well as sign and symptoms, associated risk factors, and treatment options.
Zichittella joins Dr. Brian Laliberte, chair of Cardiology, and Gina Zichittella, nurse practitioner, in providing comprehensive cardiology care at Baystate Wing Cardiology located at Baystate Wing Hospital, 40 Wright St., Palmer.
Baystate Health Senior Class is a free loyalty program dedicated to health and wellness, offered exclusively for men and women age 55 and over.
The AFib seminar with Zichettella is offered at no cost, and a light lunch will be provided. Registration is required by calling (413) 794-5200 or visiting afibwithcardiologist.eventbrite.com.
