On September 22nd my husband and I participated in the Brooklyn Heart Walk for AHA. The route took us past the site of our first date, our New York wedding picnic, and along the new waterfront! I am currently working on an essay about walking.
On November 8th I will attend the AHA Scientific Sessions conference as a Heart Valve Ambassador. From the website, "Programming is designed to improve patient care by communicating the most timely and significant advances in basic, clinical, translational and population health research, spanning the full spectrum of cardiovascular disease from a variety of perspectives, from prevention, through diagnosis and through treatment." I look forward to gaining some insight into my own condition, and to finding better questions to ask!
