Sunday 17th April 2016 marked the 10th year the magnificent gardens of the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch’s Cruden Farm were opened to the public to raise funds for medical research at Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute.
Coronary artery disease is the most common type of heart disease and occurs when the arteries that supply blood to heart muscle become hardened and narrowed due to the build-up of plaque.
A new study led by Institute Director and Cardiologist, Professor Thomas Marwick is investigating individuals who have a family history of early onset coronary artery disease. The study is using CT scans to detect early signs of coronary artery disease and to guide interventions.
We will be screening potential volunteers at Cruden Farm and offering free blood pressure and cholesterol testing to those that meet the criteria.
