Mark your calendars and join your fellow AAUW members for an afternoon filled with matters of the heart! Celebrate Valentines Day: enjoy a heart healthy luncheon, provided entirely by our Board; followed by a lecture by Dr. Michael Saxe. One of Dr. Saxe’s topics will be “Women’s Heart Health.”  He will also lecture on the current “Opioid Epidemic”’ in our area.

Dr. Michael Saxe is Chairman Emeritus, retired from the Department of Emergency Medicine at Middlesex Hospital. He practiced Emergency Medicine in Connecticut for 32 years. A graduate of the University of Vermont medical school, he completed his residency at the University of Washington in Seattle.
