Through the recommendation of her primary care physician, Martine Perreault began visiting the University of Michigan Health System's Cardiovascular Medicine program at Domino's Farms in order to develop a nutritional plan to lower her cholesterol. Now, more than a year after her first visit, she jokes that her dietitian has introduced her to her two new best friends: chickpeas and oatmeal.

Joking aside, Perreault explains that she is grateful for the cardiovascular nutrition program because it has not only taught her about heart healthy foods, but it has also given her the opportunity to take control of her health without relying on costly prescriptions or procedures.
