This Time, It’s Personal: The Future of Heart Disease Diagnosis

This is a past event.

From 17:30 to 19:00 on 4th April 2018

Summerhall, Summerhall Pl, Edinburgh EH9 1PL

Cost: £6.50/£8.50

Join British Heart Foundation Scotland for a panel discussion about the future diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. You'll discover how a more precise test developed in Edinburgh could identify those most at risk of a heart attack and how measuring levels of the protein troponin in our blood could indicate
heart health. You'll also hear Gavin McMurray's story of the devastation of losing a lifelong friend to a heart attack, then surviving a heart attack himself years later, experiences which inspired him to raise money for BHF Scotland while achieving lifelong sporting ambitions.
