Hispanic Heart Team
The Stony Brook Heart Institute includes a transcultural Hispanic Heart Team dedicated to serving Spanish-speaking patients. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) are more prevalent among Hispanics/Latinos in the United States and on Long Island than in the general population. These risk factors are associated with the development of coronary artery disease (cholesterol plaques built up inside the arteries in the heart causing blockages) leading to heart attacks, heart failure, stroke mortality and disability. Most of these risk factors can be modified with medications, diet and lifestyle changes leading to a decreased incidence of CVD. Early diagnosis and treatment with state-of-the-art techniques and technology are available at the Stony Brook Heart Institute. We have Spanish-speaking providers and access staff (tenemos los proveedores de salud y las personas de acceso que hablan español).
