This is one small, yet ENORMOUS example of the GHN Network in ACTION. It also illustrates the need for a a solid network to help each other and get patients to care where they would otherwise be unable to.
As we continue to build our network and empower collaboration we will be welcoming in December our first Executive Director/CEO, Myrto Petropoulou. To help Myrto hit the ground running we want you to share your ideas and help us understand GHN’s impact by completing our simple GHN IMPACT SURVEY
Share your frank opinions, ideas and advice with Global Heart Network, and help us to connect under served cardiac patients with the education, support, access and advocacy they require. Our survey remains open until 5th November 2015.
More about Myrto in the next Newsletter!
Many thanks and please do find time to do the Survey
