Galway Daily news Croi hosting free public talk on healthy ageing

Heart and stroke charity Croí is hosting a free public webinar next week entitled Living Well with Cardiovascular Disease: Women’s Heart Health and Menopause.

The webinar will take place on Zoom on Thursday, March 31 from 7 to 8pm.

Expert speakers will address people’s priorities and concerns for cardiovascular health and the menopause through an interactive panel discussion.

Expert speakers on the night include Dr Mary Ryan, Consultant Endocrinologist; Dr Eva Flynn, GP and Medical Educator; and Prof Catriona Jennings, Cardiovascular Specialist Research Nurse.

“While the menopause does not cause heart disease, it does increase the risk for developing conditions that are linked to heart disease,” says Dr Lisa Hynes, Croí’s Head of Health Programmes.

“We’re delighted to be joined by an expert panel to bring attention to these risk factors and the link between the menopause and heart health.”
