Living with the impact of mid-life heart event

Experiencing a heart event or receiving a heart diagnosis at any point can be a shock. Having this happen in mid-life, mid-career can completely change our world, forcing us to create a new normal. If you are on the other side of a heart event/diagnosis, in mid-life, and trying to adapt to a changed life situation, join us.

You’ll hear from two patients, Tammy and Steve, who are living this experience. Hear from University of Ottawa Heart Institute professionals on insights and strategies to help with adaptation and moving forward. A live Q&A period will follow. The focus of this webinar will be on the physiological and emotional impacts and next steps (not on specific heart conditions). 


  • Tammy Proulx, person with lived experience
  • Steven Barger, person with lived experience
  • Dr. Rozen M. Alex, C.Psych., Clinical Psychologist, Cardiac Rehabilitation, University of Ottawa Heart Institute
