The next Midlands myheart meetingwill be held on Sunday 16th November, between 10am – 4pm, in Macdonald Burlington Hotel, Burlington Arcade, 126 New Street, Birmingham, B2 4JQ. Directions to the hotel can be found here.
If you have questions about your condition or would like to meet other young people, aged 14 to 35, coping with the diagnosis of a heart condition come along to a myheart meeting.
There will be a group session where you can speak to others about about how they have coped with their condition and any other issues that have arisen since your diagnosis. This session is facilitated by Jayne Slack, a Senior Counsellor experienced in working with young people coping with heart conditions.
Lunch will be provided followed by a medical question and answer session with Dr Michael Griffith, Consultant Cardiologist at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. This Q&A session provides an opportunity to discuss any questions about your condition, exercise or any other cardiac concerns you may have with a cardiologist.
The event is fully funded by CRY and travel costs will be reimbursed on submission of receipts after the event.
