Hadassah hosts Women's Heart Health forum on Nov. 3

Hadassah has embarked on a journey to help women of all ages improve their heart health.  A multi-million dollar gift has created the Linda Joy Pollin Heart Health Institute at Hadassah Hospital and an equally important heart health program in the United States: “Every Beat Counts” 

Akron Chapter of Hadassah presents a Women’s Heart Health Forum:  Every Beat Counts on Monday, Nov. 3, from 7 to 9 pm in the Shaw JCC auditorium. Presenters will be Dr. Marc Penn and Dr. Ken Berkovitz.  The program will begin with several local women, De Friedman, Bunny Rose, and Marlen Spector, survivors of heart crises, briefly sharing their experiences. 

Questions and answers from our experts will take place following their presentations.  A nutritionist from the American Heart Association will be available before and after the program to answer personal questions and provide information about heart healthy food options.  Delicious, tasty, and heart-healthy refreshments will be served to all attending the program.

The program is open to all in the community, and the cost is $7.50 in advance and $10 at the door.  (Send your check for $7.50 per person to Marlen Spector, 431 Lake of the Woods Dr., Akron OH 44333, or you can email her at footinspectors@roadrunner.com for further information.)  You may be a Gold Sponsor of this program for $36 or a Silver Sponsor for $18.  Not yet a member of Hadassah?  Join now ($36 per year including Hadassah Magazine) and attend for free.  

Sue Spector is chair of this event.  The planning committee consists of De Friedman, Faye Glick, Livia Kades, Alice Schneider, Eileen Schonfeld, and Marlen Spector.  This program is presented with partial funding from the JWEF (Jewish Women’s Endowment Fund) and a Hadassah National Health grant, and with the support of the Summa Health Foundation and the American Heart Association.

Please join Hadassah for this informative evening.  Although the focus will be on Women’s Heart Health, both men and women will learn more about their hearts and how heart research may change lives in the future.
