Please take the Yale Heart Study

Hey everyone, if you've had a heart attack, the Yale Heart Study would love to hear from you:


Message from the survey director:

"I am the director of the Yale Heart Study of how people get medical care when they are having symptoms of a heart attack. We are asking people who have had a heart attack to share with us their experiences at our study website: http://heartstudy.yale.edu/hacs/

The goal of this study is to help people get care as quickly as possible when they are having heart attack symptoms.

This survey of heart attack care-seeking is being conducted on the internet and takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete depending on your experiences.

Participation in this study is completely anonymous.

The study has been approved by the Yale University Institutional Review Board and is funded by the National Institutes of Health. If you have any questions about this study please contact me at heart . study @ yale . edu" (remove the extra spaces in the address before emailing)."

The more people they hear from, the the better.

It took me around 30 minutes to finish, and there's space at the end to add as much info as you'd like about your individual situation.
