Following Dr. Taylor’s presentation, all attendees are welcome to participate in free, non-fasting screenings, which test for total cholesterol, HDL and glucose from 1:30-2:30 p.m. The Richard H.

Piedmont Hospital was recently recognized as Best in Atlanta for Overall Cardiac Care and Cardiac Surgery for 2008, according to The Tenth Annual HealthGrades Hospital Quality in America Study. Piedmont Hospital is the only metro Atlanta hospital to attain both the Cardiac Care and the Cardiac Surgery Excellence Awards and one of only 108 hospitals in the country to earn the distinction. Overall cardiac care includes performance in numerous cardiovascular services, including care for patients with heart attack and heart failure, which Taylor will discuss in his lecture.
