Graduation is not just a milestone; it’s a declaration of their commitment to reclaiming their lives,” said Kathy Pulley, Director of Cardiology Services. “The people that take part in Pritikin are seeing amazing, life-changing results as they work toward a more heart-healthy life, and we’re honored that they trust us with their care.”

Heart Attack Survivor Fights the Good Fight

Renown Health - Reno, NV

Mondo Corona went to the Renown Health emergency room after experiencing a persistent earache.  A blood test revealed that he’d experienced – and survived – a widowmaker heart attack!  Just over a month after undergoing a triple bypass procedure, this patient-turned-ICR-advocate began attending Renown Health’s ICR program where he learned to modify his lifestyle and prioritize his heart health. 

He described his experience as life-changing: “The care teams at both Renown (Health) and ICR were incredible.  There wasn’t a single person we came across who didn’t immediately become a part of the family.  They truly cared for us, all of us, including the extended family that came to visit.  They were informative and supportive.  I felt like I created lasting bonds with so many of them, especially the gang in ICR.  What amazing people.”
