A new Congestive Heart Failure Clinic at St. Vincent’s House run by medical students at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) is striving to better educate uninsured patients about heart failure, its complications and how best to manage the condition. The comprehensive care clinic at St. Vincent’s House in Galveston provides post-discharge heart failure patients with bi-weekly interprofessional services such as respiratory and occupational therapy by supervised UTMB students who will also monitor vitals, discuss diet, and engage in supervised exercise.
