Dr. Norma Goodwin, President of Health Power for Minorities, interviews Dr. Emer Joyce, a heart failure specialist at the Cardio-vascular Department at the Cleveland Clinic. How the heart works and what to do in an emergency was a very timely subject for discussion because February is American Heart Month. Dr. Joyce reviewed key findings from the Cleveland Clinic 2018 Heart Health Survey.
A key survey finding was that most (59%) Americans know little or nothing about heart health overall. Life-saving steps to take if one has a heart attack were reviewed based on the Cleveland Clinic S.C.A.N. recommendations, and more information was provided through the Cleveland Clinic website.
