Project Members: What is CIRCUIT?
The Centre d’Intervention en prévention et en Réadaptation CardiovascUlaIres pour Toute la famille (CIRCUIT) is a multidisciplinary program to promote healthy lifestyle habits, designed at the CHU Sainte-Justine in Montréal, Québec.
The program targets children and adolescents between 5 and 18 years of age, with at least two risk factors of cardiovascular disease such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia and hypertension.
The team at CIRCUIT is composed of a network of experienced health care professionals including a kinesiologist, nutritionist, psycho-educator, doctors and researchers. CIRCUIT is also working in collaboration with the Centre territorial de coordination en télésanté du CHUM and with CHU Sainte-Justine’s telehealth clinical director to integrate the new telehealth modules.
