Get The Most Out of MyHeartDiseaseTeam by Tailoring Your Own Team!

Posted on July 23, 2017


Get the most out of MyHeartDiseaseTeam by tailoring your own team!

A team is a group of people that you feel most connected to on MyHeartDiseaseTeam. You can stay updated on their posts, and as your team grows, you’ll notice more support from others and more answers to your questions.

When’s the best time to add someone to your team? Anytime! Add someone to your team when:

  • You see a post that you like in the Activity Feed
  • You get an email notification that someone in your area just joined and their story resonates with you
  • You find someone in the Meet Others section who shares your diagnosis, symptoms or treatment


Are you feeling shy or nervous about adding someone to your team? That’s okay! Adding someone to your team is a simple gesture, similar to a “like” or a “hug”.

Did you ever wonder why someone added you to their team?

  • Maybe something you said in your story resonated with them and they can relate
  • You live near each other
  • A member noticed you had similar symptoms as they did through ‘Meet Others’


Want to know the specific reason they added you? Feel free to ask them!

Once you’re comfortable sharing your personal experiences, you may be surprised by how many other people want to connect. Perhaps you have a pet that you love caring for, share a picture and ask the community to share their pet’s pictures too! Maybe you’ve started a new project, share updates on how it’s going. Have you seen any good TV shows or movies, read any good books? Did you discover something new that has made your life easier? All of these things are welcome on the site. You can also give encouragement to others who are going through a tough time.

MyHeartDiseaseTeam is a social network for people living with heart disease, but you are not only the condition you are living with! What do other members post? Check out the Activity Feed for more examples!

Now that you understand how to add members to your team, you can change your view of the activity feed. Click on the “My Team Activity” button on the main activity screen to see only updates from your team. Using this feature will help you stay up to date with how your team is doing.



There are no limits to adding to your team. Continue to add members to your team as you like!
