Heart lec­ture

Central Leader - - News -

Find out how to pre­vent a bro­ken heart next month at a free pub­lic lec­ture on heart dis­ease.

The Oc­to­ber 21 lec­ture, spon­sored by the Auck­land Med­i­cal Re­search Foun­da­tion, is to raise pub­lic aware­ness of car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease, which en­com­passes heart, stroke and blood ves­sel dis­ease.

It’s the lead­ing cause of death in New Zealand, ac­count­ing for 40 per­cent of deaths ev­ery year, many of which are pre­ma­ture and pre­ventable.

Speak­ers pro­fes­sor Har­vey White and pro­fes­sor Lynn Fer­gu­son will speak at 7pm in Lec­ture Room 3, in the Owen Glenn build­ing, Auck­land Uni­ver­sity Busi­ness School.

Pro­fes­sor White is re­garded as one of the world’s lead­ing car­di­ol­o­gists, con­tribut­ing to lead­ing tri­als and train­ing, and Pro­fes­sor Fer­gu­son has spent 34 years re­search­ing how food af­fects the health of hu­mans at a ge­netic level.
