Heart :: AHA to launch heart magazine – Heart Insight

Heart Insight will give readers practical advice, new treatment recommendations … and encouragement. The American Heart Association announces the launch of a new patient magazine, Heart Insight, for heart patients, their families and caregivers.

Heart Insight focuses exclusively on managing and preventing cardiovascular disease and related conditions.

Heart Insight will be published four times a year, with the first issue in February 2007. Copies will be distributed free of charge to 10,000 cardiologists? offices and other healthcare providers who are involved in patient care. Each doctor?s office will receive 50 copies of each issue.

Patients may order complimentary subscriptions for home delivery by filling out a subscription card or going to heartinsight.com. Preview issues of Heart Insight are available on site at the Lippincott Williams & Wilkins/Wolters Kluwer Health (LWW/WKH) booth, 647, or at HeartQuarters, booth 842.

The magazine will complement the AHA?s patient education programs and Web sites. Each issue will be filled with practical advice on how patients can:
? Work with their doctor to manage elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and other cardiovascular condition.
? Reduce the risk of developing heart problems by making lifestyle changes that can be worked into a busy schedule while setting realistic goals against which progress can be measured.
? Cope with the challenges of living with cardiovascular disease and related conditions, as well as how to care for someone who has chronic medical issues.

The magazine will also help patients stay on top of important news that can affect their treatment options, and keep them up to date on the latest AHA guidelines, recommendations and statements for managing or preventing cardiovascular disease. Perhaps most important, Heart Insight is designed to give patients hope, inspiration and encouragement by featuring articles about, and by, people who have first-hand experience dealing with cardiovascular conditions, either as patients or caregivers. The magazine is being published in partnership with LWW/WKH, which also publishes the AHA?s five scientific journals: Circulation; Circulation Research; Arteriosclerosis; Thrombosis and Vascular Biology; Hypertension; and Stroke.
