From AFib to Fitness Buff: A Heart Transformed

Claudia Huerta, 43, knows a thing or two about transformations. After being diagnosed with a serious, though common, heart condition called atrial fibrillation (AFib), the payroll manager and Maywood, California, resident transformed herself from being overweight and overstressed to being a lean, heart-healthy bodybuilding competition winner who is now medication free.

This September-Afib Awareness Month-Huerta and her cardiology team at the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai urge people to learn more about AFib, the most common type of abnormal heart rhythm that can lead to stroke and heart failure.

"The COVID-19 pandemic brought on a tremendous amount of stress, both physically and mentally, and I began binge eating and drinking alcohol more often than I used to," said Huerta. "During this highly stressful time, my existing heart palpitations increased, and I was tired all of

How to Resume Marathon Training After Long COVID

For some, the promise of autumn brings pumpkin spice lattes and apple picking. But for runners, it often means the height of marathon training season. While there's nothing like running in the crisp air, some athletes may be facing a new challenge this season: how to train after a COVID-19 diagnosis.

After recovering from any injury or illness, getting back into the swing of things can be difficult for some avid runners, as it comes with a variety of concerns such as understanding how and when to return to training. It can be further challenging when recovering from post-COVID conditions or long COVID — with symptoms such as pain, poor endurance, psychological issues, cognitive impairment, and more.

A Tumor on Her Spine Kept Jeannea Jordan Ashore, but Her Neurosurgeon Got Her Back on Her Boat

Jeannea Jordan, who turns 80 in October, is a local sailing pioneer who began racing and cruising her 30-foot sailboat 25 years ago when few women were part of the sport. When a tumor on her spine ran her aground last year and her oncologist at another hospital couldn’t help, she found a neurosurgeon as dedicated as she is to get her back in the captain’s chair.

Like Jordan, Tiffany Perry, MD, assistant professor of Neurosurgery at Cedars-Sinai, is a pioneer. When she joined Cedars-Sinai in 2015, she became the first female neurosurgeon on staff in the 120-year history of the institution. A trailblazer in her field for many years, she created an annual mission trip to Uganda to train surgeons and provide spinal care for patients who otherwise would never receive it. Perry felt a kinship with Jordan.

"Jeannea came to me and said, ‘My one goal is to get back on my boat,’" Perry said. "

Today, the Biden Administration is announcing a six-week campaign through the end of the year urging Americans to get their updated COVID-19 vaccine. With winter and holiday gatherings right around the corner, more Americans getting their updated vaccine will help avoid thousands of preventable COVID-19 deaths.

Making it even more convenient to get vaccinated – particularly for seniors and communities most impacted:

Over 70,000 locations are offering the updated COVID-19 vaccines, and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has taken steps this month to expand to even more locations, including mobile settings and sites in rural and remote areas, through more flexible orderi
