2018 Heart Truth Tour

Heart disease claims the lives of far too many women, especially here in eastern North Carolina. That's why Vidant Health, East Carolina Heart Institute and our physician partners are working together to offer risk assessments, screening, education and advanced treatment options.

Learn more by joining us at one of our Heart Truth Tour events in your area this February as we celebrate American Heart Month. You'll learn how it's never too early to start thinking about your heart health.

Meet Our Keynote Speaker

Jessica Melore

At age 16, Jessica Melore suffered a sudden, massive heart attack and was not expected to live through the night. Her left leg was amputated due to complications with surgery, and she lived for nine months on an experimental heart pump while awaiting a life-saving heart transplant.

A three-time cancer survivor, she overcame her first bout with non-Hodgkin lymphoma while studying at Princeton University and was named one of GLAMOUR magazine's Top 10 College Women of 2012. She graduated with high honors from Princeton, receiving the Allen Macey Dulles Award for the graduating senior who best represents service.

She's appeared on well-known TV programs and has been featured on Dateline, Good Morning America, ABC nightly news, MTV, Extra, CNN, HBO, and in publications such as Woman's Day, Wall Street Journal, Business Insider, GLAMOUR, Cosmopolitan, and many more.

Jessica's amazing story of courage and determination, and her message about taking charge of your health, will give us all hope and a new perspective on how to stay young at heart. Find out more about Jessica.
