American Senior Fitness Association president Janie Clark, MA, is pleased to be a member of the new AFib Support Team, assisting persons who have been diagnosed with the heart rhythm disturbance atrial fibrillation. Janie serves as the team’s senior fitness specialist and recently joined her fellow team members — a cardiologist, a cardiological nurse, and a lifestyle gerontologist — on a special episode of Retirement Living Television’s "Healthline" series, which was dedicated to the subject of atrial fibrillation.

Led by host Kevin Soden, MD, the "Healthline" special explains the meaning of AFib, includes the touching stories of real-life patients, explores treatment options, and provides practical approaches for living successfully with the condition.
