Heart Center Classes & Support Groups
Returning a patient to a productive life is of primary importance to the Providence Heart Center. We offer a variety of heart, diabetes, and pulmonary health classes and support groups.
Community Education Classes
Providence Heart Center offers classes that provide you with the tools and information you need to manage your health.
Heart Center Support Groups
Support groups offer important tools for learning to live successfully with a chronic disease. Being with others is an important part of this process. Sometimes just talking with others who are "walking in your shoes" is the best medicine.
Mended Hearts is a national nonprofit organization offering the gift of hope to heart patients, their caregivers and families. For more information, please visit their website at www.alaskamendedhearts.org. Additionally, you can download a copy of the Mended Hearts Heart Guide.
