Connections: The latest research on heart failure diagnosis and treatment

According to the CDC, about 5.7 million American adults have heart failure, but cardiologists want patients to know it isn’t a death sentence. New research and treatment methods – including devices and other forms of technology – are helping patients live longer, healthier lives.

Our guests discuss the latest research, and we hear from a local heart transplant patient who shares her story. Our guests:

  • Dr. Scott Feitell,M.D., cardiologist at the Sands-Constellation Heart Institute at Rochester Regional Health
  • Jackie Fields, heart failure patient and heart transplant recipient
  • Dr. Antonio Perez, M.D., cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic
