Melissa Moore, a 2006 nursing graduate from Belmont, was recently featured in an article for her work with cardiac services as an Outreach Coordinator for Advanced Cardiac Therapies at UCLA Health. In the article, Moore details the work her team is doing to expand their services to additional communities throughout Los Angeles and the surrounding area to ensure specialized care is convenient and accessible.
“We’re partnering with local cardiologists and primary care physicians to provide comprehensive services to patients closer to where they live and work,” she says.
The article goes on to detail Moore’s team’s work on heart failure treatment as more and more Americans continue to battle these diagnoses. According to the American Heart Association, the number of Americans who suffer from heart failure, an estimated 6.5 million, is expected to rise by 46 percent by 2030.
