European Heart Valve Disease Awareness Week – September 14-20, 2020 |

This year’s Heart Valve Disease Awareness Week aims to build awareness of symptoms and improve diagnosis, treatment and management of heart valve disease globally.

Why creating awareness about Heart Valve Disease is so important
Heart Valve Disease Awareness Week is important, not only to raise awareness of the disease but also to make the population more aware of the symptoms so that they can seek the help they need at the right time. It is also important that clinicians provide their patients, especially those who are over the age of 65, with regular stethoscope exams as these are the key to detecting heart valve disease.
