"Through this program, we believe we can help tackle this pervasive health problem, and bring hope to heart failure patients that they often can lead a normal, active life," said Robert Weisenberger Lipetz, Executive Director of SCPC. "Most importantly, patients need to work closely with their clinicians to create a management plan that's tailored to suit their personal needs -- and follow that plan every day."
