A new support group for those living with heart disease-or who have undergone open-heart surgery-meets for the first time on October 16 at Harrison Silverdale. Harrison cardiovascular surgeon William Caine, MD, will speak to the group, which will meet from 7 to 9 pm.
The informal setting will provide an opportunity to share information, challenges and success in all phases of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of heart disease. Time will be set aside for questions and answers. Family members and support persons are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
The first meeting of the ongoing support group takes place in the Iris Room of Harrison's Silverdale campus, located at the intersection of Myhre and Ridgetop. The west entrance of the campus offers easiest access to the ground-floor meeting space.
