How to Recognize a Heart Attack: You’d Be Surprised; September 16; noon–1 p.m.; free. The signs and symptoms of a heart attack are sometimes far from clear and obvious. This workshop will help give you the skills and knowledge you need to be able to recognize some of the lesser known signs of a heart attack. You should leave the workshop with vital health information and know-how for you and/or your family members. This workshop is sponsored by Human Resources and will be led by Dr. Joseph Carver, a cardiologist from the Abramson Cancer Center.
