The purpose of this project was to create a cardiac rehabilitation nutrition education program with relevant nutrition topics. This program aimed to educate cardiac rehabilitation participants about Eating Heart Healthy as it relates to various topics leading to successful lifestyle changes. Therefore, this program may be used as a secondary prevention tool for post-cardiac event patients.
The eight-week nutrition education program consists of three modules: general dietary guidelines, dietary factors associated with heart disease, and food selection and preparation. Each lesson includes research-based curriculum, in-class activities, take home activities, and supplemental handouts to foster multiple learning styles. Evaluation forms for each session and the program overall were included.
