Improving heart health

I am a cardiologist and researcher passionate about improving heart health in our community. My particular area of interest is in patients and families with genetic heart diseases, such as cardiomyopathies and electrical rhythm disorders, including sudden death. As a result, many of my patients are young – children, teenagers and young adults. My ultimate goal is to prevent and ultimately cure these diseases, through collaborative research efforts around the world. This is my first blog post! Hope to be able to share my thoughts (all views are my own) on various issues related to genetic heart diseases, from diagnosis and treatment, to prevention and cure – both in Australia and globally.
