Carolinas HealthCare System’s Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute offers a variety of support groups in the greater Charlotte area for people of all ages with heart disease and members of their family. The goal is to help you feel more connected as you learn more about heart disease and how to better manage your condition.

Some of our most popular heart support groups include:

  • Adult Congenital Heart Disease Support Group (ACHD) is for adults living with ACHD. Get your questions answered, talk with others and see first-hand why it's important not only to receive regular care for ACHD, but to make sure it's the right kind of care. Register for our monthly support group.
  • The Heart Success Support Group is for patients who have congestive heart failure (CHF) and their family/caregivers. Monthly meetings include educational discussions about medication, stress management, nutrition and weight control, advice to quit smoking, medical devices and other areas of concern for people with CHF.
