Let's Talk Hearts

These free talks provide a Biomedical Research Centre-led forum to learn about heart conditions, how (and why) you should keep your heart healthy, and the latest research on cardiovascular health.

The first cycle of talks was supported by a grant from Barts Charity and have continued with the support of the NIHR Barts Biomedical Research Centre.

2020 marked the 10th year of Let's Talk Hearts. Many thanks to all the speakers and attendees who have taken part in the seminar series. Many thanks also to the many volunteers who continue to help to run and support these events.

In 2021 for example the first time two virtual talks were presented by Community Smiles (dental student volunteers) on dental/heart-related topics. Without volunteers such as Community Smiles and our public and patient advisory group members, we could not do everything that we do.

In June 2022 a Let's talk hearts heart health themed exhibition stand formed part of the Queen Mary University of London's lively Festival of Communities. The stand was run with the support of NIHR Barts Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) Public and Patient Advisory Group (PPAG), for more information about the work of the group, see patient and public engagement activities.

In October 2022 an in-person Let's talk hearts talk was held for the first time at Barts Pathology Museum, a unique venue only open for special events. For more about the museum see
