Dear Members of the Society of Cardiology of Poland

I am writing to extend a warm invitation to you and all of your members to join this virtual event, which is free and open to all. You can find out more and register here.

As you may know, the Heart Failure Policy Network works to advance political recognition of heart failure, in particular to support national colleagues to secure meaningful and ambitious plans in every country and region. This year, we are hosting our second annual Heart Failure Policy Summit, starting on the 26th October and running into November. Since our establishment in 2015, we have been delighted to collaborate with many heart failure groups and cardiology societies from across Europe.

This year we are honoured to present the first ever dedicated address on heart failure by a European Prime Minister – the Taoiseach of Ireland Mr. Michael Martin TD, as well as over 40 expert speakers from some of the most exciting work in heart failure across the world.

We would be most grateful if you could share news of the summit across your networks. We kindly ask that you forward the email below to your membership, as well as to please retweet key posts on from our Twitter and LinkedIn reach wider audiences.

If this work is of interest or if you think we can support you and other heart failure leaders in your country in future, we’d be delighted to arrange an introductory call.

We very much hope to see you at the Summit, and thank you for your assistance in communicating this event as widely as possible.

With many thanks and best regards,

Ed, Kirsten and the HFPN team
