Cancer Treatment and Heart Disease: Making the connection

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

For more information, please call: 8046280041

Cardiovascular (CV) disease is an increasing concern for men and women treated for cancer.  Today, CV events are the primary cause of death for women with breast cancer, recently overtaking death caused directly by the initial cancer.  In fact, one third of women treated for breast cancer develop profound fatigue that does not resolve, and for many, making it impossible to return to work. Cardio-oncology is an emerging field that helps patients protect their heart functions during and after cancer treatment. Join Dr. Gregory Hundley, VCU Health Pauley Heart Center director, to learn more about cardio-oncology and advances being made.
