Early identification and intervention is essential in a time-sensitive illness like a heart attack. LERN’s education efforts are focused on increase awareness about the identification of symptoms and the importance of early intervention.
Dr. Zee Ali, LERN’s past STEMI Medical Director, has developed an educational video describing LERN’s STEMI System of Care, its various components, and the importance of early intervention and treatment.

For more information about LERN’s STEMI efforts, contact Yvette Legendre, LERN’s Tri-Regional coordinator.
