Meet Diane - She is the coordinator for cardiopulmonary rehab at Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest. She has been at South Suburban Hospital for over 28 years, however, she has been a clinical exercise physiologist for over 40 years. Using a variety of rehabilitation techniques to help people increase their fitness levels was a new thing at the time I started out. I had been working on my Masters degree in exercise physiology. It is a specific science designed to assist people in changing lifestyle habits that led to disease, while reducing risk factors for disease progression. I was attracted to the idea that both rehabilitation AND secondary prevention could be taught at the same time. Diane is just one small part of a campaign we are sharing on our social media accounts every week. #IAmAdvocate its the nurses by our patients bedside, the physicians, the volunteers at the front desk, the engineers in the basement, the pharmacists, the techs, the housekeepers, the cooks and everyone in-between. Stay tuned for more photos and stories from our associates, nurses, physicians and clinicians across our health care system.

Meet Dr. Vineet Dandekar - He is an Advocate Medical Group cardiologist at Advocate Sherman Hospital who has lived and breathed the Advocate Heart Institute for the past 3 years. I have always loved science and people, so it makes sense I was drawn to health care. Why cardiology? I really enjoy utilizing all the tests and procedures that are available to help correctly diagnosis and care for my patients. This changes their health for the better and I like taking the time to educate my patients through the process. Dr. Dandekar is just one small part of a campaign we are sharing on our social media accounts every week. #IAmAdvocate its the nurses by our patients bedside, the physicians, the volunteers at the front desk, the engineers in the basement, the pharmacists, the techs, the housekeepers, the cooks and everyone in-between.
