The first edition of LIFT magazine for 2019 is about National Heart Month, which is in February.
Owensboro Health has a wide range of services and experts in heart care. This edition of LIFT talks about several of them. You will find a piece on women’s heart health, another on the different types of cardiologists and a great story of collaborative learning that occurred despite obstacles of geography and language.
I hope that you find these stories enjoyable and uplifting. Happy New Year!
