At the Franco Center, we get some pretty great acts in both the Performance Hall upstairs and the downstairs Heritage Hall.
There are many still images and videos both serious, in nature, and fun!

** Because the Franco Center cares about All of our Franco Americans! Here is a YouTube film (link) made this year (2016) about a form of genetic heart disease, called Familial hyperchoesterolemia, or FH that affects Franco Americans.

Here is a brief description.
“Your heart disease is not your fault. You can blame Louis the thirteenth!” That is how cardiologist Dr. Dervilla McCann began her talk at the Franco Center this Oct 2016. She described the genetic reason that Franco Americans have a higher rate of heart attacks than other groups. It appears to be a genetic link to the founders of Quebec, transmitted when their descendants traveled to the United States during the industrial revolution. This 10 minute film, made here in Lewiston and using  Franco Center volunteers, describes the underlying medical reason for the very high cholesterol levels found in our community, and what can be done to protect your family from early heart disease.”

To learn more there is a free registry at CMMC that is designed to identify patients with this trait, get them the advice they need, and to even help them obtain the latest therapies for the problem. Dr. McCann would really like people to get in contact with the cardiology division for any questions about what you should be doing about this. The contact there is a nurse, Kim Howlett-Phillips, who is keeping a registry of patients in our region.

Thank You Dr. Devilla McCann, MD, MPH
