Dr. Sweeney's presentation will take place on Wednesday, January 21, at 6 p.m., in the Chisholm Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital. Dr. Sweeney is the medical director for cardiopulmonary services at Franklin Memorial Hospital.
"Cardiac disease is very common in our community," said Dr. Sweeney. "At this presentation we will discuss the more common presentations of cardiac disease including typical symptoms, tests available for evaluation, and potential treatment options. Significant time will be reserved for questions."
