Event description

Let’s talk about heart disease! It’s the leading cause of death in Australia and while we thought we had it under control in the 1970’s..  it’s on the rise again. This public seminar will talk about factors that contribute to heart disease including genetics and lifestyle.

This will be an interactive session and members of the audience will be given the opportunity to have their blood pressure checked and ask questions about how cardiovascular disease develops. State-of-the art research being undertaken at UWA into prevention and treatment of heart disease will be discussed.
