Spotlight on 'SADS' at Leicester Medical Conference

'For the past year since the loss of our beloved son Joe, the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust have campaigned vigorously for greater public awareness of sudden cardiac death in young people and also for a better understanding within the medical profession. We are delighted that the collective will and determination of key staff within UHL and the Trust to open up the debate on SADS and subtle heart diseases in young people has resulted in the staging of the inaugural SADS Awareness Conference in Leicester. For far too long the silent killer SADS has gone unnoticed causing utter devastation for families across the UK and beyond. The SILENCE has to be broken and this is another important step in the right direction.'

Steve Humphries, Chair – The Joe Humphries Memorial Trust
