The UAB Preventive Cardiology Section helps patients determine their risk for heart disease, helps those who are at risk of developing heart disease take steps toward better heart health, and helps those with established heart disease prevent recurrent events.

If you are at risk for heart disease, there are several steps you can take to prevent or postpone the onset of symptoms. If you have been diagnosed with heart disease, the specialists at UAB can work with you to treat your condition. Changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise combined with medical and surgical treatments can all work to alleviate symptoms and their recurrence.
