The Johns Hopkins team will be in Bermuda next week to participate in the Bermuda Day parade for the third consecutive year and also to host an event titled ‘A Woman’s Journey,’ hailed as “Johns Hopkins Medicine’s empowering women’s health program,” on Saturday, May 25 from 9.00am to 12.00pm at the Hamilton Princess.

A spokesperson said, “This free event will offer the opportunity to learn about the latest advances in heart disease, mindfulness and stroke from Johns Hopkins physicians.

“Mind Over Matter: Harness the power of mindfulness with clinical psychologist Neda Gould, as she reflects on the importance of this practice and its role in helping to mitigate acute and chronic stress, increase our ability to be present, and release unnecessary negativity—leading to enhanced health and well-being.

“Queen of Hearts: Heart disease is the No.1 cause of death for women in whom heart disease often is ignored and misdiagnosed. Cardiologist Erin Michos discerns how women and men experience symptoms differently, the impact of risk factors in women and how to protect ourselves and maintain a healthy heart.

“Surviving Stroke: A major cause of death and disability for adults, a stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of your brain is interrupted or reduced, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients. Neurologist Mona Bahouth will discuss stroke prevention, diagnosis, updates in acute medical and surgical treatment, brain repair and neuroplasticity, and behavioral recovery including new biomedical research.”

Free online registration for the event is now open. Space is limited; registration can be completed online.
