What is Heart Help Live?

In February 2023, the Heart Foundation launched the Heart Help Live series -- an online Facebook Live event featuring all the latest heart advice.

The sessions run for around 45 minutes, beginning with a live presentation from experts followed by a Q&A session answering questions from the audience. 

The series is all about offering accessible online support connecting you with a range of experts and allowing you to pick their brains. Find our next Heart Help Live session by following us on Facebook and going to the 'Events'

Below you can watch videos of the previous sessions. 

The topics that have been covered so far include:

  • Top heart questions answered
  • Living with heart failure
  • Heart-healthy eating
  • Long Covid and the heart
  • Women’s heart journeys
  • Sleep, stress and social connection
  • Blood Pressure Basics – Nutrition and Clinical Advice
