Education is part of our DNA. We were founded on the principle to help educate healthcare professionals on the dangers of chest pain and the benefits of early heart attack prevention. Today, we have multiple educational programs such as our annual congress, accreditation services, workshops, webinars, and ask-the-expert calls.
Our education is primarily designed for healthcare professionals, but we also have patient education and Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC) materials for professionals to share in their communities.
"The average patient arrives in the emergency department more than two hours after the onset of symptoms, but what they don't realize is that the sooner a heart attack is treated, the less damage to the heart and the better the outcome for the patient."
