For many of our patients, managing cardiac health is a lifelong effort. Northwestern Medicine emphasizes the importance of preventive medicine—taking measures to keep disease from occurring—in managing heart health. Northwestern Medicine Center for Preventive Cardiology offers a variety of programs to prevent heart disease and improve your overall heart health.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a supervised program of exercise and education for cardiovascular patients. The goal is to help patients return to the best possible physical condition so you feel stronger, have more energy and decrease your risk for future cardiovascular problems.
