Heart disease is the nation’s number one killer, even outranking all cancers combined.
At HeartSense, we aim to address health inequities, specifically by closing the care gap in access to heart health and education in Louisiana and beyond.
Through our educational resources, local pop-up screenings, volunteers, funding partners, and valued donations, you will find us working directly with our community members in need.
Our founders have built the bridge in our local communities to overcome systemic barriers that limit access to advanced technology and expertise. Together, we can reduce the risk of undiagnosed heart disease.
"Dr. Antoine Keller... co-founder of HeartSense, said, “We would like to offer the Eko digital stethoscopes, we have some iPad devices, blood pressure cuffs and artificial enhanced technology to allow people in Turks and Caicos who live in remote locations to be able to have access to specialists who might be 100 or 200 miles away."

We are honored to have been featured in Eko's Front Lines episode, "Closing the Gap". This video encapsulates the impact that our organization has on our community, as we aim to close the care gap in access to heart health and education in Louisiana and beyond.
As we face new variants of the COVID-19 pandemic and students start to head back into schools, what will their education experience be like moving forward? We talked with Madison Keller, M.D. candidate at Louisiana State University, New Orleans School of Medicine, about her time as a medical student amid the pandemic. In our new episode of The Pulse, learn about the transformations of technology and access in medical education, hybrid clinical settings, what's in store for the future, and how she has learned from her doctor-to-patient screenings with HeartSense.
If heart disease is a health issue that runs in your family or if you’ve experienced any symptoms of heart disease, scheduling a heart health screening is a priority.
Cost, location, proximity to a specialist, and fear should never be deterrents when it comes to keeping your heart healthy. Trust the healthcare professionals of HeartSense to help you and your community take its first steps towards a healthier tomorrow.
