Cardiomyopathy information day in Belfast

26th April 2016

Families affected by cardiomyopathy can find out more about the condition at our information day near Belfast on Saturday, 14 May.

The day, at the Maldron Hotel at Belfast International Airport, is being held by Cardiomyopathy UK  to help people learn more about the disease, advances in care, latest research and to meet others who are affected. 

The main speaker is Professor Perry Elliott from the inherited heart disease team at Barts Heart Centre in London.  He will be talking about hypertrophic , dilated and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and their treatment.

Dr Alison Muir, a consultant cardiologist from the Royal Hospitals, Belfast, will be discussing heart devices used to treat cardiomyopathy, and her colleague Tracy Jardine, an inherited heart disease nurse specialist, will speak about the psychological impact a diagnosis of cardiomyopathy can have on patients and their families.

Cardiomyopathy UK chief executive Joel Rose will talk about how the charity can help affected families, and independent financial adviser Bill Bartholomew will discuss cardiomyopathy and life insurance.

The information day will be held from 9.30am to 4.30pm. People affected by cardiomyopathy, their family members and friends are all welcome.

Attendance is free, but those who wish to join us for lunch are asked to pay £12 each towards the cost.
