Cardiac Education Program

Our Cardiac Education Program provides an ongoing series of classes for patients and their families and friends, to give them the opportunity to learn about heart disease, treatment, and prevention. CPR training classes are offered, too.

Our classes are held in the comfortable learning room in the Heart Institute at Stony Brook Medicine. Sample topics include:

  • Medication Guidelines: What you need to learn about your cardiac medications.
  • Home Exercise Program: Learn how to start a home exercise program.
  • Stress Management: Take charge of your cardiac health and learn ways to lessen your risk for heart disease.
  • Heart Healthy Nutrition: Learn how to read nutrition labels and make healthy food choices.

This program is free of charge. Participants will receive validations for parking, and heart-healthy snacks will be served.

Registration is required. Call (631) 444-4000, Monday through Friday, and provide the following: 1) number of people planning to attend, and 2) your name, address, and phone number. Registering at least one (1) week in advance will allow us sufficient time to mail a map to you.

Heart Month Events

Stony Brook Medicine is dedicated to the health and well-being of our community. We are pleased to share with you important information that can help keep you healthy.

Throughout February, American Heart Month, Stony Brook supports the American Heart Association's national campaign, "Go Red for Women," and hosts free opportunities for community members to get screened, get educated and get involved in their own heart health. We hope you will join us next February for one or all events, and join in the fight against heart disease.
