3rd August 2017

Leading Professor Perry Elliott is today named as Cardiomyopathy UK’s new President.

Perry Elliott is currently the Clinical Lead of the Inherited Cardiovascular Disease Unit at the Bart’s Heart centre and Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at UCL. Over the past 20 years he has established an international reputation in the field of heart muscle disease, authoring more than 280 peer reviewed papers on the subject.

Professor Perry Elliott said: “I’m delighted to be chosen as the next President of this amazing charity. The charity has a strong history of dedication, passion and sheer commitment for helping people and families handle cardiomyopathy. It is a fatal condition that affects seemingly young and healthy people and can hit entire families. The support this charity provides to patients, families and the medical community is crucial and I’m privileged to be taking this forward in the hope we can save even more lives.

Joel Rose, Chief Executive said: ”Perry has been a longstanding supporter of the cardiomyopathy cause and we feel he will be an excellent advocate to help us increase awareness of the condition. We know that there will be fewer avoidable deaths if more people can recognise the symptoms and get the treatment they need and we are committed to helping those diagnosed with cardiomyopathy to lead long and fulfilling lives.”
