The American College of Cardiology (ACC) recently launched CardioSmartTXT™, a free texting program to prevent and manage cardiovascular disease. CardioSmartTXT will provide support, information, advice and tips on heart disease prevention as well as disease-specific states.
The ACC introduced two texting channels in the program’s launch – CardioSmartTXT PREVENT and CardioSmartTXT QUIT. CardioSmartTXT PREVENT is a six-month program aimed at the proactive prevention of cardiovascular disease and general heart health and wellness. CardioSmartTXT QUIT is an intensive smoking cessation support program to help users achieve smoking cessation goals.
Users can sign-up for CardioSmartTXT PREVENT or CardioSmartTXT QUIT at www.CardioSmart.org. Additional texting channels will be launched throughout 2012.
