Find out more about cardiomyopathy

11th August 2015

Families affected by cardiomyopathy can find out more about the condition at our information day near Leeds on Saturday, 31 October.

The day is put on by Cardiomyopathy UK to help people find out more about the disease, advances in care, latest research and to meet others who are affected.  

People who come to our information days tell us they find them very helpful and encouraging.

The information day, led by experts in cardiomyopathy care, includes sessions on dilated cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, but people with other types of the disease are also welcome and their questions will be answered.

The main speaker is Professor Perry Elliott, from the inherited heart disease team at Barts Heart Centre in London, who will talk about the different types of cardiomyopathy and latest treatments.
