“The Active Partnership Workbook and DVD set is a valuable and consistent educational tool for our cardiac and stroke patients. We use the set to educate our patients in the hospital, in cardiac rehab and in the community. It addresses therapeutic lifestyle changes and encourages patients to become their own health advocate. Our patients and families love it and so does our staff.”
