Heart Matters: Memorial Hospital Providers to Educate About Cardiovascular Disease

February 14, 2023

North Conway, NH — Nurse practitioners at Memorial Hospital are considering matters of the heart this week-though their focus is more physiological than sentimental.

Sarah A Lacey, APRN-FNP, and Sarah B Petersen, FNP-MSN, from cardiovascular services at Memorial Hospital will be hosting an educational talk about risk factors for cardiovascular disease and prevention strategies at the Gibson Center on Friday, February 17 at 12:30.

“We are excited for this opportunity,” says Lacey. “We are looking forward to sharing some practical strategies for preventing cardiovascular disease and helping people to understand their risk for the disease.”

The Gibson Center for Senior Services invites those who are interested to attend the talk on Friday, February 17 at 12:30 pm. For those attending lunch at the Gibson Center, the program will follow shortly after the conclusion of lunch.

Memorial Hospital and the Gibson Center are teaming up to host a series of community education talks hosted by health experts. Future health topics include nutrition and diabetes and organ donation.
“I am excited about our working together with Memorial to improve the quality of people’s lives,” says Jill Reynolds, Gibson Center Program Director.
