He is a cardiac electrophysiologist with Trinity Clinic.  It is frankly awesome what is being done every day to extend the life of a heart!  And Carol Cushman, our own AAUW member, will be leading the tour (thank you, Carol, for setting this up for us)!

You will hear what’s new, and tour the beautiful Heart Hospital not quite a year old. We will meet in the conference room on the lobby floor of the hospital Tuesday, November 12, at 5:30 p.m. The Heart Hospital is attached to Mother Frances Hospital on the east end, at the corner of S. Fleishel and Dawson, with plenty of parking right in front.

Please RSVP to Joan Goecking ( or call 903-780-7657, programs co-chair, by Friday, November 8th, so the hospital can have a headcount.  If anyone is interested in meeting afterwards for dinner somewhere, I’m sure that can also be arranged in the moment!  We hope to see you there, and remember, spouses and friends are always welcome to attend our programs.  After all, everyone has a heart and they need to know how to keep it healthy!!
