Healthy Heart Clinic

A new Preventive Cardiology clinic has been created at the Tulane Center for Cardiovascular Health Tulane Cardiac Center of Excellence to treat C V risk factors in children and adults. The Healthy Heart Clinic is unique because the entire family can be evaluated at one time. It is served by Pediatrics and Adult Cardiologists, and personnel with special expertise, i.e., dietician, exercise physiologists, etc.

The focus will be on promoting heart health by helping families to change C V risk factors such as HIGH CHOLESTEROL, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, SUGAR DIABETES, OVERWEIGHT, SMOKING and PHYSICAL INACTIVITY in a positive way.

The clinic is held at TULANE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER and will employ a team of internists, pediatric and adult cardiologists, nurses and nutritionists.

The clinic is fortunate to have Drs. Berenson, Srinivasan, and Johnson as consultants and will benefit from the experience of the entire team of researchers at the Bogalusa Heart Study.
