When we think of heart and circulatory diseases (H&CD), we often don’t realise that it can affect younger people. However, every week in the UK, twelve families will experience the loss of a loved one under the age of 35 to sudden cardiac death. These deaths are often caused by a genetic heart condition.

This World Heart Day, 29th September 2024, In a Heartbeat will aim to answer questions about heart and circulatory diseases and underscore the urgent need to address their causes. Highlighting positive work in action being undertaken by organisations and individuals aiming to combat heart and circulatory diseases. We will look at technical innovations, scientific advancements, lifestyle apps, and the latest developments across the spectrum of heart care.​

There are commercial opportunities for leading organisations to be featured in the programme and spearhead their own news item. If your organisation wants to share what you stand for and be part of this important conversation about heart health, please contact ITN Business’ Head of Healthcare Programming, Georgia Gerstein and Programming Director Valerie van der Graaf.
