I enjoy speaking to groups about athletes and heart health. Potential audiences and venues might include triathlon clubs, race directors or organizations, medical groups, and local running/bike/tri shops, among others. Some popular talks have included:
- “Heart Health and Endurance Sport”
- “Triathlon Fatalities: Lessons Learned”
- “Triathletes and Heart Problems”
Contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like me to speak to your group. Sometimes we can coordinate a speaking engagement when I already have plans to be in your area.
