Last week, the Alliance held a webcast to discuss new survey results about valve disease awareness in the U.S. and the experiences of valve disease patients as they are diagnosed and seek treatment. We also took the opportunity to announce a new effort we are launching in collaboration with 29 other organizations to designate February 22 as National Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day. The webcast featured Susan Peschin, MHS, president & CEO, Alliance for Aging Research; Nancy Belden, MA, partner, Belden Russonello Strategists; and Susan Strong, AHA Heart Valve Ambassador.
We invite you to watch the webcast below. To learn more about the Alliance’s valve disease efforts and to see available educational resources, please go here.
