You're Invited to the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Patient Support Group Kickoff Event
We invite you and your loved ones to join us for our first ever Spectrum Health Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy patient support group kickoff event. This event will be led by our very own patient champions who will share their personal journey of living with the disease. Our goal is for you to connect and learn with others who have been affected by HCM.
Our special guest speaker for the evening will be Lisa Salberg, CEO and Founder of the HCMA. HCMA was created in 1996 as a national support resource for families affected by HCM. Lisa, an HCM patient herself, is an internationally recognized speaker on HCM and has devoted her career to advocating, researching and raising awareness for individuals with HCM. Once Lisa made the courageous decision to work full time for the HCMA, she has functioned as the course director for the Annual HCMA meeting for the past 12 consecutive years, co- authored books and authored articles in medical journals as well as trade publications and has been interviewed and quoted in numerous articles and news pieces throughout the years. She has also served on many panels, councils and represents the HCMA in several coalitions.
