The Lombard Fire Department is joining forces with Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital to educate residents about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, in order to help save lives.
Residents are invited to Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave., on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 6:30 p.m., to learn about the full spectrum of heart attack symptoms and potentially lifesaving information.
Dr. Peter Kerwin will lead the lecture and provide information about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, and what to do if someone is experiencing them. Often times, men and women have differing symptoms. Men may experience the common description of shooting pain but can also feel lower back discomfort. Women’s symptoms can be more subtle and can include tiredness or dizziness, which can be overlooked as exhaustion. The lecture will take place in the Community Room at Lombard Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave.
