Essentia Health and the Essentia Institute of Rural Health invite you to a community educational event focused on advanced heart care research. The Learn4Life event will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27, at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth.

Cardiologist Dr. Katie Benziger, who is director of heart and vascular research at St. Mary’s-Heart & Vascular Center in Duluth, is host of the complimentary event.

“In our previous Learn4Life programs, we’ve rotated topics, focusing on oncology, trauma and EIRH. I’m excited this year to be featuring current heart and vascular research,” said Dr. Benziger. “It’s a great opportunity to showcase the dozens of studies, including stents, devices, imaging, medications and care management, such as the heart failure program, which has been a model of care for the past 30 years.”

The keynote speaker is Dr. Ramin Artang, a cardiologist at the Heart & Vascular Center. There will be an open house with appetizers, refreshments and exhibits from 5-5:50 p.m., followed by Dr. Artang’s speech and a patient panel discussion from 5:45-7 p.m.

The Essentia Health Foundation provided support for the event. An RSVP is appreciated, but not required.
