Article

The May Med School Café lecture, titled “A Mother’s Heart,” will feature two physicians at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine.

This is a lecture exclusively for USA faculty, staff, and their dependents.

Dr. Clara Massey, professor of internal medicine and director of the division of cardiology, and Dr. Steve Cordina, assistant professor of neurology and medical director of the USA Stroke Center, will provide information on heart disease and stroke.

The lecture will take place May 11, 2012, at the USA Faculty Club on USA’s main campus. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.

According to the American Heart Association, heart disease claims the life of almost one woman every minute. During the talk, Dr. Massey will lecture on the latest research involving cardiovascular care and the latest news on heart disease prevention.

In addition, Dr. Cordina will discuss new treatments and interventions available for stroke victims, as well as prevention strategies. He will also explain how to recognize signs of an impending stroke. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. On average, someone in the United States has a stroke every 40 seconds.

The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, please call Kim Partridge at (251) 460-7770 or e-mail kepartridge@usouthal.edu.

Med School Café is a free community lecture series sponsored by the USA Physicians Group. Each month, faculty from the USA College of Medicine share their expertise on a specific medical condition, providing insight on the latest treatment available.
