American College of Cardiology
Excellent resource for patients and medical professionals alike.  In the Patient Education Section, the "heart and health links" section is especially useful, with a searchable database of websites that deal with everything from children's resources and clinical trials to support groups and forums for individuals with heart disease.

Heart Point
The Heart Point Gallery provides a wonderful multi-media education about various aspects of the heart and heart disease, with animation showing procedures such as angioplasty and bypass surgery.  In addition, there are valuable sections on health tips and heart-healthy recipes.

American Heart Association
A very important and reliable website with education about heart disease and stroke.  Includes a risk assessment test, large glossary, information on nutrition and exercise programs, and recent publications on heart disease.

Heart Information Network
A comprehensive website for patients and medical professionals.  Highlights include an extensive "Question and Answer Library" (where you can submit a question to be answered by physicians), a nutrition guide, and patent stories on various topics.
