More than health care providers, the professional staff at the Heart & Lung Institute of Utah consider themselves health educators. We encourage our patients to learn as much as possible about their health, medical issues and health care needs. That’s why we offer the following online education resources:
Krames Online Health Resource
StayWell Online is the most up-to-date patient education resource. With access to more than 4,000 topics relating to health and medication, StayWell Online enables you to find answers to most medical questions. Using the search function, you can access an extensive library of fact sheets and videos of evidence-based, medical peer-reviewed information on a wide range of diseases, disorders and conditions, as well as their diagnoses and treatments. StayWell Online also features a comprehensive medication reference section, which provides information on both prescribed and over-the-counter products, as well as nutraceuticals.
Free “Heart Healthy” Classes
At the Heart & Lung Institute of Utah, we believe that preventing heart disease is better than overcoming it. That’s why we offer the community complimentary “Heart Healthy” classes, which provide practical information for lowering your cholesterol, losing weight and much more. Led by a registered dietician, these classes will teach you how well-balanced, healthy nutrition can help improve your health and also help to prevent health issues in the future.
