WELCOME TO STUDENT HEART HEALTH
Student Heart Health believes in teaching young people about the importance of keeping a healthy heart.
Online and in schools, colleges and universities, we aim to raise awareness of the issues surrounding heart health and to promote medical research into the area.
This website provides lots of valuable information about why heart health is such an important issue, even for young people, as well as advice and information about living a positive lifestyle. We'll also keep you up-to-date with the work we're doing and how you can help.
Please take a look around, leave a message of support or get in contact with your thoughts and ideas.
WORLD SALT AWARENESS WEEK
21-26 March is World Salt Awareness Week. As part of it, SHH have added a new article to the Nutrition section of the website to help explain why getting the right balance with salt is so important. Check out the article here.
JUSTGIVING ACCOUNT CREATED
As you can see from the shiny new donation button in the top right-hand corner, SHH has now launched its own Justgiving page.
