Lebanon, NH – As American Heart Month draws to a close, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Heath (D-HH) wants to remind the public that heart health is critically important year round. Cynthia C. Taub, MD, MBA, FASE, Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s (D-H) new section chief of Cardiovascular Medicine, will join D-HH CEO and President Joanne M. Conroy, MD, at noon on Tuesday, February 23, for the latest installment of the “Connect with the CEO” series, to answer questions from participants about cardiovascular health and issues live on the D-H Facebook page.
“As a cardiologist, American Heart Month is a crucial time for those of us in cardiovascular medicine to get the word out about the importance of heart health,” Taub said. “It’s very fitting that my position with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center started during American Heart Month, and I look forward to joining Dr. Conroy to introduce myself to the community and get to share the message out about taking the best care possible of our hearts.”
“Heart disease is the number one cause of death for American adults, so raising awareness and educating the public about it is key to reducing risk,” said Mark A. Creager, MD, director of the D-H Heart and Vascular Center. “I urge everyone to tune into Drs. Taub and Conroy’s discussion, and ask questions, it’s the best way to learn how to keep your heart healthy.”
