Hearts and Minds Conference 2012


In the summer 2011 Bright Ideas Nottingham presented British Heart Foundation Hearts and Minds Conference and this year, on the 27th of June it is back bigger and better.


Heart disease is the biggest single cause of death in Nottingham and some ethnic communities are more at risk than others. According to NHS Nottingham City, heart related death rates are probably double in our South Asian and African Caribbean communities, compared to the general Nottingham population, and those populations are also three times more likely to develop diabetes.

The good news is, heart disease is treatable, and also very preventable, but do people know how to prevent it?

The Hearts and Minds Conference was to raise awareness of heart disease with the aim of encouraging the city’s many diverse ethnic communities to get involved in spreading the word.

Ali Orhan from the British Heart Foundation and Nigel Cooke from One Nottingham will launch the new and exciting year long programme for Nottingham at this event.

The event will be compered by the well-known journalist, producer and presenter Trish Adudu and Christine Belle, presenter with independent Nottingham radio station 97.5 Kemet FM who was also be broadcasting live from the event.
