RICHLAND, WA - Kadlec Regional Medical Center is working to spread the word about women's heart disease during American Heart Month. 

Friday, February 7th from 11:30am to 1:00pm at the Richland Red Lion, Kadlec is hosting "A Heart to Heart with Kadlec," it's a physician panel discussion on women's heart health.

Kadlec says 250 women will visit interactive booths from Kadlec cardiac departments and the American Heart Association's Heart Chase Tri-Cities. They will then be able to ask questions to an expert panel, consisting of a heart attack survivor, Susan Senner; an emergency department physician, Holly Cooper, MD; an interventional cardiologist, Fadi Alquaisi, MD; a cardiac electrophysiologist, James Kneller, MD; and two heart surgeons, Juan Cordero, MD, and Hannah Chaugle, MD.

Kadlec says women who attend do need to register ahead of time for the event.

The event is free, and a free heart healthy lunch will be included.
