McGill Cares: Understanding the Impact of Atrial Fibrillation

Wednesday, February 16, 2022 12:00to12:30

Join us on February 16, 2022, at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia.   

Understanding the Impact of Atrial Fibrillation 

In recognition of Heart Month, Claire Webster aims to raise awareness about one of the most common cardiac diseases, atrial fibrillation – its symptoms, causes and treatment. She will be joined by Dr. Jacqueline Joza, Cardiac Electrophysiologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at the McGill University Health Centre, to celebrate an issue very close to her own heart. Despite many years of challenging cardiac health issues, Claire has led a very fulfilling and active life.  She is a long-term patient of the Montreal General Hospital and is extremely grateful for the attention and care that she receives from the Cardiac Electrophysiology Program. 

Dr. Joza cares for patients with both general and inherited arrhythmias and has a special interest in ablation of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, leadless pacemaker implantation, and novel techniques in defibrillator implantation. Her current research focuses on physiologic pacing, familial sick sinus syndrome, and atrial fibrillation. 

This episode of McGill Cares is made possible thanks to a donation by Claire and Stuart Webster.
