Welcome to ‘Advancing Your Health’

Emory Heart and Vascular Center is thrilled to participate in the launch of the new Emory Healthcare blog, titled ‘Advancing Your Health’. This is our opportunity to converse with you, share stories, offer advice, and educate you on matters of the heart, including medical procedures and advances. Our bloggers are physicians, patients, and well, you. We encourage you to post your comments, questions and thoughts. We’re here to serve as a sounding board as well as a resource for information.

In this month’s series of blog posts, we’ll explore the methodology behind LVAD/VAD technology and hear stories from William Shaw and Rachel Moore, two Emory Heart and Vascular patients.

As our blog progresses, there may be topics that you’d like for us to touch on. If so, speak up and let us know! Emory’s ‘Advancing Your Health’ blog is as much yours as it is ours.

We look forward to hearing from you.
