St. Francis Heart Center will offer several free classes locally this month on heart health.
Cardiologist Dr. John Moore III will lead a course on treatment options for atrial fibrillation. It begins at 6:30 p.m. today at the Heart Center, 8111 S. Emerson Ave., Indianapolis. With the condition, the heart beats irregularly at a high rate. If severe, it can lead to a heart attack, stroke or death.
Dr. Harry Genovely will discuss syncope, a condition causing temporary loss of consciousness and posture, that usually is related to a temporary insufficient blood flow to the brain. Determining the cause can be a challenge, and one of the possible sources is a disorder in the heart. The class will take place 6:30 p.m. Oct. 24 at the Heart Center.
