Lakeland has started a Healthy Hearts support group through Facebook to create an online community for people with heart disease. If you have congestive heart failure or are recovering from recent heart surgery, you are invited to join this Facebook group. Led by a Certified Cardiac Rehab Specialist, this group is a place where people can share resources, tips, recipes, and other helpful information with one another.
Once you log in to Facebook you will need to request to join the group: click here to join. This group is a "closed group" only members of the group will see what is posted, the information will not be shared with your Facebook friends.
