Mended Hearts offers peer support group

A kickoff meeting, led by chapter leader Karl P. Ullrich, Ph.D., will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. today in the Southeast Georgia Health System Linda S. Pinson Conference Center, Room 1, on the Brunswick Campus. The purpose of this meeting is to introduce the Mended Hearts program to the community and to recruit volunteers to get involved with the program to help provide support to those that have experienced a frightening heart event.
