'Atrial Fibrillation' is Focus of Free Program

Doctor to Discuss Facts, Symptoms and Management of Cardiac Condition

People diagnosed with atrial fibrillation – the most common type of cardiac arrhythmia – can learn more about their condition by attending the free community program, “Rhythm of the Heart: All About Atrial Fibrillation.” Robert Wilson, MD, of Appleton Cardiology, will sort fact from fiction about irregular heart rhythm and address questions like, “Why does it occur?,”  “What are the symptoms?,” and “Can it be managed?”

The free program begins at 6 p.m. on Tues., March 26, in the Ironwood Room at Appleton Medical Center.
