The Wright Center Patient Engagement Council (PEC) will be hosting a Caring Hearts Panel Discussion and Dinner on Saturday, April 28 at the Carbondale Grand Hotel (25 S Main St, Carbondale). Our second annual event will be chaired by Dr. Linda Barrasse and moderated by Paola Giangiacomo, host of the popular WVIA television series Call the Doctor. Dr. Linda Thomas-Hemak will be joined in a panel discussion by Dr. Jumee Barooah, Dr. Pranjal Boruah and Dr. Sukrut Nanavaty.
Joining the event this year is Bridget Feeney, a recent heart transplant recipient and author of the blog “Preppy Prosthetics”. Bridget will present the keynote speech during dinner following the panel discussion. Bridget is a testament the fact that health issues do not define who we are or limit what we can do in our lives. Her resiliency is inspirational and we are honored that she has agreed to share her story with us.
The goal of this initiative is to prevent cardiovascular diseases and create a community support network for the patients and families of cardiac conditions.
The cost to attend is $25 per person. To RSVP or learn more about sponsorship opportunities call Betsy at 570.591.5138.
