Health Notes: New St. Vincent's program aims to reverse heart disease
By Charlie Patton, Florida Times-Union
St. Vincent’s HealthCare is offering patients a new program, “Undo It With Ornish,” which is the first program that research suggests can reverse heart disease.
The program was developed by Dean Ornish, a physician who is president and founder of the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute as well as clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco and a bestselling author.
The Ornish program is reimbursed by Medicare and other commercial payers for qualified individuals. St. Vincent’s will host its first Ornish session on Aug. 17.
Interested patients can call (877) 888-3091 or visit www.jaxhealth.com/UndoIt.
