WomenHeart Houston is a support group providing peer-to-peer patient support and education for women living with heart disease. This kind of support is crucial to a woman’s recovery and well being, and that of her family. The national coalition, WomenHeart, has found that through its peer-led networks, women are better able to make well-informed decisions about their health and care based upon the educational programming and emotional support these networks provide.

Texas Heart® Institute at CHI St. Luke’s Health – Baylor St. Luke’s – a proud member of WomenHeart’s National Hospital Alliance program – has partnered with WomenHeart to support women cardiac patients by serving as the host site for the WomenHeart Houston chapter. Meetings are free of charge and open to all, regardless of where treatment is received. \

This month Dr. Gabriel Loor will be the special guest and available to answer questions about maintaining good health after a tragic storm like Harvey. Dr. Loor specializes in the clinical evaluation and surgical management of patients with advanced cardiothoracic disease including coronary artery, aortic and valvular heart disease. Dr. Loor has a special interest in advanced heart and lung failure and is the surgical director of the Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center Lung Transplantation Program.
