February is American Heart Month.
Please consider covering the following heart-related stories.
As survival rates for cancer patients are increasing, doctors are beginning to look at the long-term adverse effects of cancer treatment, including damage to the heart. Cardiologist Anantharam Kalya, MD, is leading a new effort at The University of Arizona Cancer Center at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center to combat heart problems facing many of today’s cancer survivors. Dr. Kalya’s “cardio-oncology” program focuses on preventing the onset of heart failure in cancer patients. For more information or to schedule an interview, please call 602.406.3312.
Volunteers at Dignity Health Chandler Regional Medical Center have sewn more than 4,000 heart shaped pillows for patients recovering from heart surgery at the hospital. The unique pillows are used as therapy devices to help expedite healing after heart surgery. Reporters are welcome to interview the volunteers and capture visuals of the volunteers delivering a pillow to a patient in need. Call 602.406.3312 to schedule.
