Participate in Cardiac Rehabilitation Research
The Johns Hopkins Cardiac Rehabilitation Center offers the opportunity for patients to participate in scientific research studies. These studies have been collaboratively developed with patients and will help shape the way that cardiac rehabilitation is delivered in the future. Our current studies are focused on using technology for home-based delivery of cardiac rehabilitation, allowing patients a more flexible way to engage in cardiac rehabilitation at home, in addition to in-person sessions at the cardiac rehabilitation center.
