Getting to the heart of it: Perkins Community Forum

Event Date: 
16 October 2018
Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research
QEII Medical Centre, 6 Verdun Street

Cardiovascular disease kills one Australian every 12 minutes. Despite remarkable advances in the treatment of cardiovascular disease, we have surprisingly little understanding about the basic causes.  The looming obesity and diabetes pandemic mean that cardiovascular disease is manifesting itself earlier in our lives.

The Perkins is hosting a Community Q&A Forum with cardiologists, heart researchers and patients to share their knowledge and answer your questions. Come and hear from a panel of experts on the role and challenges medical researchers face to find urgent answers. 

Tickets are essential. Light refreshments will be served afterwards. Please purchase your seat via
