COVID-19 & Heart Surgery Webinar Invitation

 

During this special online event, we will answer important questions including:

  • What is the newest research about COVID-19 and its impact on the heart and heart valves?
  • Are patients with heart valve disease at more or less risk for getting infected with COVID-19?
  • Why and how should patients actively monitor heart valve disease symptoms during COVID-19?
  • What are the risks (and potential health emergencies) for patients who delay seeking treatment for heart valve disease?
  • What new safety protocols have hospitals implemented to ensure the safety of heart valve patients during COVID-19?

We will also have a live “Questions & Answers” session where YOU can ask your questions LIVE to Dr. Chikwe, Dr. Burkle and John.

This webinar is co-sponsored by Medtronic & Abbott.

Keep on tickin!
