At the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation, we work every day to improve people’s lives through the highest-quality cardiovascular research and education. We conduct groundbreaking clinical research, testing new treatments, medications and devices that aim to improve the longevity and quality of life of patients with heart disease. We are involved in cutting-edge population health research, such as our Hearts Beat Back: The Heart of New Ulm Project, which is designed to prevent heart attacks and save lives. We share our discoveries through publications and professional training to ensure providers are equipped to provide patients with the highest level of care and individuals are empowered to protect their health.
