Do you feel unusually tired, have shortness of breath or experience swelling in your ankles, legs or feet? Or have you been diagnosed with a heart murmur? You may have valve disease, or you may have been born with a valve condition, and your heart has to work harder than it should to pump blood through your body.

Anyone can develop valve disease—in fact, aging is a risk factor. Left untreated, valve disease can lead to heart failure, stroke, blood clots or sudden cardiac arrest.

Come learn what causes valve disease and how to protect yourself from further damage. Meet experts from both Bridgeport and Yale-New Haven Hospitals who are working together to provide breakthrough non-surgical and surgical valve treatments available only through Yale New Haven Health System.

Presented by Bridgeport Hospital’s Joel E. Smilow Heart Institute and the Yale-New Haven Hospital Heart and Vascular Center.

Light refreshments will be served.
