Summary: Take advantage of this unique opportunity to chat live on October 28, 2011, with atrial fibrillation experts from the Cleveland Clinic and the founder of StopAfib.org.
Our previous chat with doctors from the Cleveland Clinic was so popular that they have agreed to do another one. Please join us on October 28, 2011 for the next atrial fibrillation chat.
Take this opportunity to learn more about atrial fibrillation, including diagnosis and treatments, and have your questions answered by Dr. David Van Wagoner and Dr. Walid Saliba from the Cleveland Clinic and Mellanie True Hills, Founder and CEO of StopAfib.org
- David Van Wagoner, PhD, is a Translational Scientist who works with physicians in the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic. As a scientist, Dr. Van Wagoner does not treat patients, but works closely with Heart Center physicians to research the mechanisms underlying atrial fibrillation, and to develop and assess new techniques for treating atrial fibrillation and other aging-related cardiovascular conditions.
- Walid Saliba, MD, is the Director of the Electrophysiology Lab and a Staff Cardiologist in the Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing in the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic. He is board-certified in cardiac electrophysiology, cardiovascular disease and internal medicine. Dr. Saliba is trained in all aspects of clinical cardiac electrophysiology and pacing, including catheter ablation of various arrhythmias. Dr. Saliba’s research has focused on topics related to new treatments for atrial fibrillation.
- The Cleveland Clinic doctors will be joined by Mellanie True Hills, Founder and CEO of StopAfib.org and the American Foundation for Women’s Health. Following a brush with death in emergency heart surgery as well as a near-stroke from a frightening irregular heartbeat in the same year, Mellanie True Hills pledged to use her second chance to help others avoid the #1 and #3 killers, heart disease and stroke. After being cured of her life-threatening irregular heartbeat, atrial fibrillation, she also launched StopAfib.org, a non-profit patient advocacy organization to provide information, education, and support for those living with atrial fibrillation
