HeartStrong|RN was created by a cardiac nurse for those pursuing a heart-healthy lifestyle. Our Lifestyle & Wellness section features weekly motivation, heart-healthy diets, and exercises to keep you and I both in top shape! For those seeking to learn more about the heart, it’s functions, and conditions, the Cardiac A&P section is right up your alley. For questions or advice, I can be contacted at heartstrongrn@gmail.com. You can also follow me on IG @rbarnes005.
