WHY:

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic continues to provide ongoing education and information to patients and members of the Houston community. Our Feb. 1 event will offer women an opportunity to learn ways to reduce their own risk of heart disease and understand the value of important health numbers like cholesterol and blood pressure. Considered the "silent killer," heart disease is the number one killer of women, which is why it's especially important for women to know what to expect when it comes to nutrition and exercise and ways to reduce their risks.
 
Our physicians and medical staff look forward to this opportunity to meet and educate women downtown.
