Denver, CO –  In collaboration with the American Heart Association, HealthONE is hosting a free virtual event on atrial fibrillation (Afib).  This educational program is open to all members of the community and will be presented by Aurora Denver Cardiology Associates’ Christopher Porterfield, M.D., M.P.H., and American Heart Association Vice President of Community Impact Dr. Takiyah R. Wilson.

AFib is the most common arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, that occurs in individuals.  AFib can lead to blood clots, stroke and even heart failure.  More than 450,000 hospitalizations each year across the nation are a result of AFib and upwards of 158,000 deaths as well.

Thanks to advancements in treatment and community education about the importance of identifying AFib symptoms, a diagnosis is treatable. HealthONE and the American Heart Association are working together to bring AFib education to the community.  Consider registering yourself and sharing with a loved one or neighbor who might find this information helpful.  Participants can expect to learn:

  • What is AFib?
  • The warning signs
  • The risk factors
  • How AFib is treated
  • Connection between Afib and stroke 

WHEN: Thursday, September 7, 2023 | 4:30-5:30 PM
