Albuquerque, N.M. — Have a question about heart disease, the symptoms and healthy heart living? ABQ Health Partners is once again providing opportunities to ask a doctor a question.

Within the last four months, ABQ Health Partners has hosted two twitter chats where anyone could submit questions, and in 140 characters or less, individuals would receive an answer via twitter from an ABQ HP Doc. Now, there is an opportunity to ask an ABQ HP Cardiologist!

Please join us for the ABQ Health Partners Cardiology Patient Support Group & Interactive Educational meeting Saturday, August 23 from 10am-12pm held in the Gibson Medical Center Auditorium, 5400 Gibson Blvd. SE. The speakers will include Michelle Khoo, MD – Cardiologist, ABQ Health Partners and Samuel Sears, Ph.D., Professor at East Carolina University, Departments of Psychology and Cardiovascular Science. Both will focus on the “Psychological Effects of Heart Disease” and living a ‘heart smart’ lifestyle. This is a free event to anyone interested and lunch will be provided. RSVP to Johanna at 262-7280. Space is limited.

If you cannot make it, you still have an opportunity to ask a doc a question via social media. Michelle Khoo, MD and Samuel Sears, Ph.D. will be available to instantaneously answer questions submitted using the hashtag #AskABQHeartDocs. Follow ABQ Health Partners on Twitter at @abqhp to join the conversation.

Additionally, feel free to message and ‘like’ ABQ Health Partners Facebook page at Questions will be responded to via Facebook as well. 

Please note: Any answers/advice given by an ABQ HP physician throughout the #AskABQHeartDocs chat is general & shouldn't be considered a diagnosis. All medical cases vary. Please consult your physician regarding your specific medical needs.
