Cardiovascular Disease Awareness

Anyone Can Have Heart Disease

Every 12 minutes one person in Australia dies from cardiovascular disease.
Many heart diseases can be prevented, and even after diagnoses many can be treated and managed effectively.

But for treatment to work, you need that diagnosis.
