It Starts with Your Heart: Understanding Heart and Circulatory Diseases
1 in 4 of us will die from heart and circulatory diseases. Let us change that.
When was the last time you had a conversation about heart or circulatory diseases? They are the world’s biggest killers but we don’t often talk about them. We want to change that. People are often surprised to hear about how diseases like coronary heart disease, stroke, vascular dementia and diabetes are connected. This course will help you learn more about what these diseases are, the effect that they have on your body and how our pioneering research is taking us closer to a world without them – helping you to have conversations that have the potential to beat heartbreak forever.
This course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn more about the fundamentals of heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them.
You might be personally affected by heart or circulatory diseases, or maybe you’ve recently been told you’re at risk of developing them. You may be looking to improve your knowledge so you can better support a loved one or a healthcare professional looking to help people better understand and talk about heart and circulatory diseases.
Whatever you’ve come here for – we hope you take something meaningful away.
No prior knowledge of heart or circulatory diseases is needed.
