About me

The South Asian Heart Center is a non-profit response to the twin epidemics of heart disease and diabetes in people who trace their ancestry to the countries in the Indian subcontinent. South Asians have a higher incidence, more severe presentation, and earlier onset of disease compared to the general population. This, despite being mostly vegetarian, non-smoking and non-obese.

The Center was established in 2006 to raise awareness, reduce incidence, educate physicians, and conduct research on this population health disparity.

The South Asian Heart Center has created AIM to Prevent™, a program to address the twin epidemics of heart disease and diabetes.  AIM to Prevent

 is a specialized, evidence based, three phase prevention program:

·         Assess with advanced and comprehensive screening to uncover hidden risks

·         Intervene with culturally-appropriate Lifestyle MEDS™ counseling, and

·         Manage with personalized, heart health coaching.
