Public Service Announcement - Free Drop-in Sessions: All About Heart Failure

    VANCOUVER, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Heart failure affects people in many different
ways and can develop over several years or suddenly as a result of a heart
attack. For most people heart failure is a life-long condition.
    Join experts from St. Paul's Hospital's Heart Function Clinic for a
series of short lectures on what heart failure is, how it's treated, what you
can do to prevent it, and if you have it, what you can do to manage it.
Experts will be available to answer any questions about heart failure and
provide valuable information on prevention, drugs for treatment, diet,
exercise and self-care.
    Presented by Providence Health Care's Heart + Lung Institute in
association with the Canadian CHF Clinics Network, this event is sponsored in
part by Medtronic Canada.
