What’s Happening

Barton Health Resource Center wants to raise awareness among women that heart disease is their No. 1 health risk. More women die yearly from heart disease than all cancers combined.

Dr. Gerrie Gardner, D.O., FACC, FACP, will present a free lecture, “Calling All Women – Are Your Hearts Healthy?” from 6 to 7:30 p.m. tonight in the Barton Hospital board room. Gardner, a cardiologist who practices with Sierra Nevada Cardiology in South Lake Tahoe and Nevada, was the first full-time cardiologist in South Lake Tahoe. She specializes in cholesterol management, coronary artery disease and pacemaker intervention.

Gardner will reach out to women in the community and alert them to their personal risk factors for heart disease. By joining together we can raise awareness locally about heart disease and help women on the path to prevention. This lecture could save your life.

For more information call the Barton Health Resource Center at (530) 543-5537.
