MyHeartBlog was created to provide a place for people to receive impartial, reliable, and trustworthy information on a variety of medical and health-related topics. We began as a small group of doctors with one vision: to improve the public’s education and awareness of health and disease on a grand scale. At first it seemed like an impossible task, but many late night meetings and cups of coffee later, the dream was realized and MyHeartBlog was born. We have now grown into a global collaboration of medical specialists, each of whose main aim is to pass on their expertise in order to improve the health and knowledge of as many individuals as possible.
At MyHeartBlog, we take pride in ensuring that all the information provided is of the highest quality and accuracy. Unlike other websites, which often contain material written by non-medically qualified personnel, all the articles on MyHeartBlog are compiled by medical doctors who are specialists in their respective fields. Our aim is to combine our extensive experience with the latest findings in medical research and present it in a way that can benefit readers from all backgrounds.
MyHeartBlog focuses on the major health issues that concern the population today. Instead of simply listing limited amounts of information on every medical disease known to man, we instead concentrate on providing comprehensive information on the topics that most interest our readers. We are not afraid to tackle controversial issues and are more than happy to take suggestions from you! If you have something you want to know more about, let us know and we will endeavor to help.
If you have enjoyed reading the articles on MyHeartBlog and have found the information to be useful, please help us spread the word by clicking on the social media links that can be found throughout the website, so that others, too, may benefit.
