    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    American College of Cardiology's Cardiosmart
    Robert A Harrington, MD posted:
    I have mentioned the Cardiosmart website as a resource a few times in individual posts. This is a terrific website supported by the American College of Cardiology, the major professional society for cardiac caregivers in the US (and with plenty of international members as well). There are some good pages dealing with common cardiac conditions and procedures. There are some links to helping you find a cardiology specialist in your area if needed. I'll continue to refer to specific pages when I think that someone might benefit from some of the materials but for now, take a look and see if there are some things that you find helpful.
