Issues in Cardiology
In Partnership with Learning in Retirement
LIR’s favorite cardiovascular internist, Dr. Joel Furda, will return to host informal discussions of some of the more common cardiovascular issues we face as we age. He will pick up where he left off in Fall of 2023 with high cholesterol and coronary artery disease (April 11), and congestive heart failure (May 14). Dr. Furda will briefly introduce each entity, then take audience questions about that topic. This will be an excellent opportunity to get a detailed overview of the effects of these conditions on the body, the possible treatments, and maybe most important of all, the best preventive measures we can all take for our health. General questions on the topics are welcome. Make a free, private appointment with Dr. Furda to ask questions about one’s personal health or health of a family member. Please call the Oneida County Health Department at 715.369.6116 for this consultation.
Dr. Joel Furda, MD is a retired (sort of!) internal medicine specialist with nearly 50 years of experience in the medical field. He graduated from University of Iowa in 1974. He had a solo internal medicine practice on Frederick Street in Rhinelander for many years, then after additional cardiovascular training, affiliated with Cardiovascular Associates, continued to serve patients in our community and region.
