There is a good mix of articles. I read this for my husband who has had a stroke, has apnea and a-fib. It helps me know what to ask the doctor. RP, Warrington, PA
I am a Cardiac Rehab nurse and believe the Harvard Heart Letter helps me easily stay current regarding heart disease news and research.

Excellent, on the very short list of publications I consider authoritative. D.A. New York City
When first diagnosed with coronary artery disease my first reaction was a mixture of anxiety and confusion. Suddenly what seemed normal became complicated. My heart and health, which rarely crossed my mind in the past, now required my complete attention. Worse, I realized I didn’t know enough to make good decisions about my condition. So I decided to subscribe to the Harvard Heart Letter. Harvard Medical School, it seemed to me, was a very famous and very trustworthy place for information. I was also confused because it seemed like dozens of stories and reports I found on the Internet contradicted each other. It’s difficult to know what to believe or what action to take. The Harvard Heart Letter provides the information I need to stay informed about heart health and more importantly puts it into perspective – all in language that I can understand. With valuable information from the Harvard Heart Letter, I now have the peace of mind that I am an informed partner in my own treatment. What were once anxious visits to my cardiologist are now more active and effective discussions of treatment options, medications, and outcomes. J. Malloy, CT
