If you have a cardiovascular condition or if you are concerned about your risk factors, it helps to get informed. The idea behind this website is to helping people learn about cardiovascular health and the healthcare system. If you or someone you care about has heart disease, we hope the information here will help you learn about your condition as well as the tests and treatments you may need. And, of course, we aim to offer you suggestions for making the most of your time with the healthcare professionals on your care team. We hope you’ll make every second count! For us, there’s nothing more inspiring than the patients who have generously allowed us to share their stories. That’s what you’ll find here – stories from real patients and their families.
