"An excellent opportunity to meet other families and share experiences and advice with each other. It shows our children that they are not alone in having FH."

National FH Family
Fun & Education Day

On Saturday 22nd October 2016 we held our first FH Family Day for ambassadors and patients who are affected by Familial Hypercholesteroleamia.

There were presentations from health care professionals including Consultant Cardiologist Dr Barbir Mahmoud and Clinical Nurse Specialist Lorraine Priestley-Barnham both from the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust. There was also a diet and lifestyle presentation from our Dietetic Advisor, Baldeesh Rae and plenty of time for networking and discussion. 
We enjoyed a heart healthy buffet lunch whilst being entertained by TV magician Alan Hudson
We would like to thank all those that attended and helped make the day a great success and have given us a lot of ideas for the future of the organisation. Keep your eyes peeled for an event like this in the future.
