Connections guests discuss heart disease
Friday, Feb. 26, 2010
According to the American Heart Association, an estimated 81,100,000 Americans (more than one in three) have one or more types of cardiovascular disease, and nearly 2,300 die of cardiovascular disease each day, an average of one death every 38 seconds. Heart disease is also the number one killer of American women.
In recognition of American Heart Month, Connections with Renee Shaw dedicates a program to heart disease. Scheduled guests are Karen Bolin, system vice president of Women and Children’s Services with Norton Healthcare in Louisville; Mary Wilson, a heart attack survivor from Nicholasville; Dr. Anthony Morano, a cardiologist at Saint Joseph Hospital in Lexington; and Joey Maggard, executive director of the Central Kentucky American Heart Association.
The program airs this evening at 5/4 p.m. CT on KET2. and Sunday, Feb. 28 at 1:30/12:30 p.m. CT on KET.
