Expert Alert - Struck by Cupid's Arrow? - CIHR experts discuss matters of the heart this February during Heart Health Month

    OTTAWA, Feb. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Sustaining a loving relationship is seldom
as simple as giving chocolate, flowers and crimson-coloured cinnamon hearts.

by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research are available to talk about
