Pritikin Intensive Cardiac Rehab is proud to welcome Christine Alongi to our Pritikin ICR team as our new Director of Virtual ICR and Product Development. In her new role at Pritikin ICR, Christine will be creating additional virtual cardiac rehab services that will allow providers to extend cardiac rehab beyond the walls of the traditional outpatient-based program, as well as developing new services that Pritikin can bring to market.
Alongi is a Registered Dietitian with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dietetics and Kinesiology, a Master’s Degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Cardiac Rehab, and an MBA. She has more than 20 years’ experience in the healthcare delivery field, having worked in college athletics, and as a Clinical Dietitian focusing on cardiovascular disease and cardiac rehabilitation. For the past 5 years, Alongi worked as the Director of the StrongHearts Rehabilitation Clinics at Arkansas Heart Hospital where she witnessed firsthand the life-changing benefits of the Pritikin ICR program.
She is a passionate advocate in the preventative and healing power of exercise and nutrition, and has made it her mission to educate and empower others to make positive lifestyle changes. Her experience, dedication, and enthusiasm made her the perfect fit. We are excited to have her on board!
