Please join Calgary Health Foundation on April 11 for TalkHealth: Women’s Cardiac Health. TalkHealth is a free event Calgary Health Foundation hosts to educate, inspire, and recognize its supporters.

Women’s health is underfunded, under-researched, and not talked about enough. Come and learn about women’s health priorities in Calgary and dive further into women’s cardiac health.

We are full for in-person seating, but great news, we are also offering a virtual live-stream of the event! Make sure to register for the live stream by April 9.
