Nevada County women are invited to join the Business and Professional Women of Nevada County for “Heart-Shaped Community: An Update on Women’s Heart Health” at their February 20 dinner meeting in recognition of National Heart Month. Doris Frazier, RN, MS, vice president of Cardiovascular Services at the Mercy Heart & Vascular Institute, will present current information about women’s hearts: coronary artery disease, heart electricity issues, and heart valve health.
Why do women experience different symptoms than men, and why have women historically been treated differently for cardiovascular health concerns than men? Doris has been involved in cardiovascular administration for over 25 years. She has held positions in both non-profit and for-profit hospital enterprise systems. Her experience includes education, management, and executive positions with a variety of hospital systems including Sharp HealthCare (San Diego, CA), Community Health Systems (Nashville, TN), and currently with Dignity Health as Vice President, Cardiovascular Services/Mercy Heart & Vascular Institute in Sacramento, CA.
She earned her Masters of Science degree in nursing from Texas Women’s University and her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from The University of Texas, Austin. She serves on the Board of the American Heart Association of Sacramento and the national American College of Cardiovascular Administrators, and has published articles and presented at national symposia on a variety of cardiac related topics.
Plan now to attend on Wednesday, February 20 at the Holbrooke Hotel Express Room. Networking hour begins at 5:30, dinner at 6 p.m. Cost is $22.
