ESC helps launch Cardiovascular Health Week

The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) is supporting the first Cardiovascular Health Week, which gets underway today in the European Parliament in Brussels.

The week will feature awareness-raising activities centered around the theme, "Mind Your Heart -- For a Heart Healthy Europe," according to ESC. The initiative is organized by the Members of the European Parliament (MEP) Heart Group, under the auspices of the European Parliament, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and with the support of the ESC and of the European Heart Network (EHN).

MEP Heart Group meetings will be held during the week with European experts to discuss pressing issues related to cardiovascular health, according to the ESC. Other planned activities on the schedule include CPR training, free cardio fitness classes in the European Parliament Sports Center, heart-healthy meals in the main European Parliament restaurant, and a cardiovascular screening exercise for MEPs.
