February 24, 2011 — Mellanie True Hills, founder and CEO of StopAfib.org, an atrial fibrillation patient advocacy organization, is an invited speaker for the upcoming Fourth Annual Western Atrial Fibrillation Symposium. Taking place February 25-26, 2011 in Park City, UT, the Western Atrial Fibrillation Symposium is the fastest growing atrial fibrillation medical meeting.

According to Symposium Director Dr. Nassir F. Marrouche, "This is the best and most comprehensive education meeting focused exclusively on atrial fibrillation, and addresses the disease from multiple perspectives. For the first time, the faculty also includes someone representing the patients. Mellanie True Hills, the founder of StopAfib.org and an atrial fibrillation survivor, will share her insights on the disease from the patient’s perspective."

In her speech, Hills will cover what has been reported in surveys and medical research about living with atrial fibrillation and will talk about what it is really like to live with based on her journey as an atrial fibrillation survivor. She will talk about why she started the atrial fibrillation patient advocacy organization, and what the atrial fibrillation community has asked her to share with the medical community about living with afib.
