Julie’s research aims to help patients who survive a heart event but who do not participate in an existing prevention program.  She is currently undertaking a series of scientific studies where patients can access a prevention program that involves goal-setting and regular encouragement and where patients themselves are actively involved in making choices about their treatment. If effective, the strategies developed would lower the risk of future heart attacks among thousands of Australians on a daily basis.
