Two manuscripts on PPCM accepted in peer reviewed medical journals

We received a lovely email from Lindsey Rosman, Ph.D. Research Fellow, Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine Department of Medicine Yale School of Medicine New Haven. The two research papers she completed with the help of heart sisters was

Contraception and reproductive counseling in women with peripartum cardiomyopathy https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28578148

and Depression and health behaviors in women with Peripartum Cardiomyopathy  http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0147956317300146

And she extends her heart felt thanks and wants women know that their time and participation in the study led to new information that will be used to inform healthcare professionals about the health and quality of life issues PPCM survivors experience as well as facilitate the development of new and effective treatment interventions to improve the quality of life for women and their loved ones.

Lindsey's email below -

Good morning, About a year and a half ago, I contacted your organization regarding my study at East Carolina University titled, The Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Quality of Life Registry. Your organization was very enthusiastic about the research and allowed me to post about the study on your website, and played a critical role in study recruitment. Your efforts allowed us to collect important quality of life data from one of the largest samples of PPCM survivors in North America and conduct an in-depth examination of the emotional, physical, interpersonal and quality of life needs of PPCM survivors. Since the study ended last year, we have been busy going through the data and preparing manuscripts for publications based on registry data.

I am pleased to inform you that we just had two manuscripts accepted for publication in peer-reviewed medical journals. I think it’s incredibly important to let women know that their time and participation in the study led to new information that will be used to inform healthcare professionals about the health and quality of life issues PPCM survivors experience as well as facilitate the development of new and effective treatment interventions to improve the quality of life for women and their loved ones. We hope that these papers and future papers based on registry data will fulfill this important goal. If you have any additional questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me at any time. I am now a fellow in Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine.

Again, I cannot thank you enough for your enthusiasm and support.

Warm regards,
