2016 Delegate comments

2016 Attendee remarks from Faculty and Delegates:

“You can rely on the HEART UK meeting to provide you with the most recent and up-to-date information in the field of clinical Lipidology in the UK and an insight into what is on the horizon.”

“The conference allowed me to present a poster to an audience of experts in the field of lipidology… it was a fantastic learning opportunity.”

“All of it. It is the best source of reliable information on lipid medicine and provides excellent opportunities to network and understand what's happening all over the country.”

 “A good opportunity to update knowledge in the field of Lipidology and learn about things that could be applicable at the Clinic and are not just at a research level.”

 “Very informative, excellent networking opportunities, suitable for clinicians, nurses and AHP's.”

 “Probably best UK event for CPD in lipidology and related fields.”

"Having only been in post as British Heart Foundation Clinical Nurse Specialist in Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH) a couple of months, the prospect of attending a conference whereby experts in the field of lipidology, cardiology and FH are abundant was both daunting and exciting. I hoped to put names to faces, to gain a better understanding of the ‘bigger picture’ and to meet people who could stimulate my mind and trigger ideas. I am glad to say all those targets were exceeded but, not only that, the main heartfelt theme that all delegates, speakers and patients together had the same passion for the prevention of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) was very evident. From professors to patients’, the message was clear, learning from each other and challenging practice for a better life for all, a message which was quite refreshing."

"...the HEART UK Conference taught me that everyone in the field is approachable, we all have the same aim and I look forward to the next conference where I hope to gain a better understanding of the genetics and science behind FH."
