Taking charge of your heart CBT

We know you will soon be an adult and in charge of your own life. One of the most important things you can do as an adult is to take care of your heart. Caring for your own health will help you achieve the best possible heart health.

We have created a computer based training (CBT) program for you to help you learn more. The program is fun and interactive. It can help you learn how to take good care of your heart and yourself.

It should take you about 30 minutes to complete this program and includes the nine sections listed below. Each section is followed by a short quiz to let you know how well you have learned the information. 

  • Super charged
  • Your amazing heart
  • Genetics: What color are your eyes?
  • The birds and the bees
  • Pregnancy and your heart
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • School and career choices
  • Insurance basics
  • Taking control with advance directives

If you have any questions, email Kathy Murphy—one of our nurse practitioners. She will get back with you in a day or two.
