Genesys heart physicians present talk on heart health

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) To help consumers better understand how their heart works and how to keep it healthy, Genesys Medical Education will present a heart health talk Wednesday, Feb. 12 from 6 pm to 9 pm at Genesys Conference and Banquet Center in Grand Blanc.
Sunil Rao, DO, FACC, cardiologist with Genesys Heart Institute, will provide general information on how the heart works, how to prevent heart disease and how to live a heart healthy lifestyle.

Following his presentation, Matthew Ebinger, DO, electrophysiologist with Genesys Heart Institute, will discuss atrial fibrillation, a rapid and irregular heart rhythm that arises from chaotic electrical activity in the upper chambers of the heart. This condition impacts some five million Americans, and that number is projected to increase over the next 25 to 30 years. Genesys established an atrial fibrillation clinic that offers advanced care and treatment for patients with this medical condition.

To sign up for the heart health talk, call Genesys at 810-606-7725. Cost is $5 in advance and $7 at the door.
