At Northwell Health, we strive to educate our patients, their families and the communities we serve about the importance of preventing heart disease.
Discover answers to frequently asked questions about preventive cardiology and learn essential information to discuss with your primary care physician and your cardiologist.
We offer free community lectures where our healthcare team discusses the importance of preventive cardiology and answers questions.
Discussion topics include:
- How to lower your cholesterol
- What your blood pressure numbers mean
- What you can do to maintain a healthy heart
Depending on the location and setting of the health screenings, free blood pressure screening and personal consultations/evaluations are available. To arrange a customized screening or lecture in your community, please call (516) 823-8968.
Our cardiologists collaborate with other specialists to provide comprehensive care to our patients. Our multi-disciplinary approach can include:
Northwell Health connects patients with organizations managed by peers who have experienced cardiac surgery. The following organizations are able to provide additional support:
Mended Hearts, Inc./Mended Little Hearts: a national and community based organization that provides individuals who experienced heart surgery or heart disease an opportunity to encourage and support patients with similar conditions. The Mended Heart volunteers conduct hospital visits while a patient recovers, online check-ins and additional support through phone conversations. Learn more about this organization.
WomenHeart is a national coalition for women with heart disease that provides educational information, support and additional services. Learn more about this organization.
