Keynote speaker will be interventional cardiologist Mouhanad Freih, who joined the Beebe Medical Staff in 2008. An accomplished physician, he is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology. He sees patients at his private practice, Clinic by the Sea in Lewes, and has performed many lifesaving cardiac interventions at Beebe Healthcare. Before practicing at Beebe, Freih had earned several research excellence awards while completing his fellowship work in cardiology research.

As an extra addition to the luncheon event, community health nurses from Beebe Healthcare’s Population Health Department will be providing blood pressure screenings from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. for those attending the luncheon.

To raise awareness about heart disease in women, the American Heart Association in 2004 kicked off the Go Red for Women social and educational initiative, which includes an annual fundraising luncheon bringing women together to learn more about the disease so they can empower themselves.
