National FH events 2017

Around the world atherosclerosis societies, networks and FH patient organisations are holding events and activities to raise awareness of FH among the general public and healthcare professionals. The more people are aware of FH, the more likely we are to get FH onto the public health agenda.

We have listed some of the local and national events taking place before, during and after FH-week, September 18-24.

Is there an FH-related event happening near your?
Let us know, and we'll post it here. Send details to info@eas-fhsc.org.
