Mended Hearts® – Guest Speaking Dates

Mended Hearts logoMended Hearts, Inc. is a national non-profit cardiac support group that is dedicated to inspiring hope, offering encouragement, and improving the quality of life for heart patients, their families and caregivers. The organization was started by Dr. Dwight E. Harken, a heart surgeon, with three of his open heart surgery patients in January 1951.

Over 60 years later, there are 300 Mended Hearts chapters in the U.S. and Canada where heart patients meet monthly for ongoing social, emotional and practical support. They are partners with over 460 hospitals and rehabilitation clinics. Mended Hearts offers services to heart patients through visiting programs, support group meetings and educational forums.

A few months ago I had the honor of speaking to an engaging group of heart patients at their Oakland chapter (#188) that meets one Saturday a month at the Kaiser Hospital in Oakland, California. I talked about the “Keys to Cardiac Health” and covered the top eight strategies to living a longer and stronger life.

Since then, I have been invited to speak at the following Mended Hearts chapter meetings. I hope to see you there!

  • Saturday, February 8 from 2:00-3:00 p.m., Kaiser Hospital, Hayward, California. Chapter #162 meets on the second Saturday of every month from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 8 from 5:00-6:00 p.m., Washington Hospital, Fremont, California. Chapter #110 and Washington Hospital Cardiac Rehab patients meet on the second Tuesday (typically) of every month from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
