Cardiomyopathy Conference 2020 - Session Recordings

All the sessions from our Cardiomyopathy Conference 2020

 

On 12 September 2020, Cardiomyopathy UK delivered our most successful conference to date.

Tickets for the event sold out ahead of the event, with 700 registrations and more than 800 people from 25 countries planning on joining us.

We would like to thank everyone that attended on the day, the incredible clinicians that volunteered their time and we would like to extend a special thanks to all those that donated to the Change the World of Cardiomyopathy campaign.

We need your support to make up for lost income due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our fundraising, as we may lose as much as £180,000 or 20% of our income by the end of this year. Your donations help us to deliver events like the Cardiomyopathy Conference, reaching more people than ever before. If you can, please donate here.

If you registered for the Cardiomyopathy Conference through Eventbrite, you can still view all of the sessions, participate in discussion, network with other attendees and provide feedback about the Conference on our dedicated site www.cardiomyopathy2020.org.
