Washington Post Highlights Afib: “Atrial fibrillation is easy to find, but evidence on how best to treat it isn’t”
June 8, 2010 7:10 AM CT
The Washington Post just did a feature highlighting atrial fibrillation, including treatments and evidence of results. It also included a poignant look at what afib does to patients. Mellanie True Hills, founder of StopAfib.org, was one of three afib patients featured in this article.
This article was written by the delightful Julie Appleby of Kaiser Health News, and appears on both the Washington Post and Kaiser Health News web sites.
Here’s where to find the two versions of the article along with a companion piece on comparative effectiveness research for atrial fibrillation:
