The Ottawa Heart Support Group is an active group of heart patients who meet and wish to improve the quality of life for themselves and their families. We meet on the third Monday of each month, with the hope of helping others. We share experiences and aim to improve awareness and understanding of various heart conditions. Our objective is to reduce the fear, anxiety, and emotional stress that can often result from having a serious health problem. Our focus is on developing positive attitudes and enjoying life to the fullest.

We pursue these objectives at our informal, monthly meetings with interesting and informative speaker as well as other heart-related activities. We welcome new members, their family and friends.
