ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - CentraCare researchers are looking for past heart attack victims to take part in a new study seeking to reduce the risk of future attacks, the company announced Wednesday.

The CentraCare Heart & Vascular Center is seeking patients who suffered from a myocardial infarction at least 30 days ago to become a participant in the research investigating the use of medication and its ability to reduce the risk of future heart attacks as well as other cardiovascular events such as a stroke.

Those chosen will get all study-related care and medication at no cost, according to CentraCare Center research coordinator Jen Humbert.

About 785,000 Americans suffer their first heart attack each year.

Anyone interested in join the study can contact Humbert at 320-251-2700, ext. 57560; or email her at humbertj@centracare.com.
