Heart Matters is a community-based project that aims to save lives through delivering heart health education to communities who need it most. This is a joint project between Heart Foundation, Ambulance Victoria, Monash University with the support of the Victorian State Government.
Heart Matters is being delivered in regions of Victoria with the highest risk of heart attack, and low levels of heart health knowledge and ambulance use. That is why Heart Matters is in Whittlesea.
We want our community members to recognise and respond quickly to heart attack warning signs, and to know and manage their risk of having a heart attack.
Free Heart Matters education sessions will be held for community groups and businesses in the Whittlesea region until the end of March 2023. The session will cover the warning signs of a heart attack, what to do if you or someone you know has those warning signs, and how to reduce your risk of having a heart attack. What participants learn in a Heart Matters session could save their life, or the life of someone close to them.
