A Day With Joe Piscatella

Joe Piscatella is one of the nation's leading experts on lifestyle habits and cardiovascular health.  He uses the art of storytelling, contagious humor and a remarkable personal story to educate and motivate audiences to live a healthy, balanced life.  TIME magazine calls him "a force for positive change".

Hospitals use A Day with Joe Piscatella to educate patients and staff, to publicize the hospital, to promote the cardiovascular service line and to build your brand.  In one day at your hospital Joe presents: 

  • Heart-body
  • A Community Program on lifestyle habits and the prevention and management of heart disease
  • A CME/CEU program for staff 
  • TV, radio and newspaper interviews to publicize the hospital, the cardiovascular service line and the event.


What makes Joe's programs so unique?   His personal experience of coronary bypass surgery at age 32.  The prognosis was that he would not live to age 40.  But Joe didn't accept that prognosis and instead developed a healthier lifestyle.  Today he is 41 years post-bypass.  The practical perspective of what he did and how he did it are central to Joe's presentations and to the information and messaging "sticking" with patients.
