Did you know that every week in the UK at least 12 young people die of un-diagnosed heart conditions?

Since its formation in 1995, Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) has been working to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death (YSCD). CRY supports young people diagnosed with potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions and offers bereavement support to families affected by YSCD. CRY promotes and develops heart screening programmes and funds medical research. CRY publishes and distributes medical information written by leading cardiologists for the general public. CRY funds fast track referral, screening and cardiac pathology services at leading UK hospitals.

There will be a display of CRY and British Heart Foundation literature plus a rolling demonstration of an AED (automated external defibrillator) at the following times and places:

Friday 24th March in Poole House Atrium from 10:00 – 14:00

Friday 31st March in the BoHo Lounge, Bournemouth House from 10:00 – 14:00

Thanks are due to BU’s Health & Safety team for their support of this event.

Please come along to find out more. It could save your life or the life of someone you love.
