Patient Information - Support Groups
North Shore University Hospital hosts quarterly educational programs for patients and their loved ones. For specific dates and times, call (855) HEART-11, or (855) 432-7811.
In addition, WomenHeart, a national support network, offers peer-lead support groups for women living with heart disease. The group is open to women who have experienced a heart attack, suffer from any cardiac condition, or are at risk for heart disease.
In a caring and welcoming environment, WomenHeart offers:
• An opportunity to share your experience and feelings
• Learning from others who have been touched by heart disease
• Educational forums about heart disease and other related topics
• Information and strategies to lead a healthier lifestyle
