For Your Heart's Sake 2005
The ESC Congress will be accompanied by For Your Heart's Sake, the ESC public event on prevention messages, to be held in central Stockholm during the weekend of the Congress. For Your Heart's Sake consists of fun yet educational activities on cardiovascular disease prevention and offers free risk assessment (of blood pressure, cholesterol and overall risk prediction using the ESC HeartScore tool) to attendees. For Your Heart's Sake will also feature messages specific to the Women and Cardiovascular disease theme of the Congress. Press may request visuals and further information on this event via the main ESC Press & PR Office.
