Gwent Defibbers would like to thank Professor Alan Williams for attending our June 2015 support group meeting.
As a scientist the Professor was able to offer us a glimpse into the research which is undertaken into cardiac arrhythmias.
A series of slides enabled the professor to explain to us that his department was working to find out how arrhythmias were affected by cellular and molecular events.
The BHF also offers insight into the work that is done by the Professor and his team… https://www.bhf.org.uk/research/our-top-professors/professor-alan-williams
During our talk the Professor also raised awareness of screening young athletes to help prevent sudden cardiac death. More details here.. http://www.britishathletics.org.uk/governance/health-safety/cardiac-screening-for-athletes/
