The steady rhythm of your heart is a background function you may hardly notice. That is, until it skips a beat - or maybe two - then races away, leaving you more than a little worried—and perhaps at risk for stroke. So, what do these palpitations mean and how do you know when it's time to seek care? Join Dr. Nasir Shariff for a free and informational session about palpitations, atrial fibrillation, other heart arrythmias and the latest treatments available that help manage an errant heart beat.
