Community Peer Support
As part of the CardioSmart Initiative, the American College of Cardiology has partnered with Mended Hearts to expand a network of cardiovascular patient support and care. Mended Hearts is a peer support organization made up of patients, families and caregivers that have in some way been impacted by cardiovascular disease.
Volunteers of Mended Hearts draw on personal experiences as they help other patients and families navigate the emotional journey of heart disease. Through in-hospital visits, community support groups, health education workshops and more, Mended Hearts gives peace of mind to patients and families by connecting them with others facing a similar journey.
