HRI - In a Heartbeat

Hi there,

Welcome to your last issue of In a Heartbeat for 2014. We are delighted to introduce you to our new Director of Cardiovascular Research, Professor Shaun Jackson... and at the same time bid a fond farewell to our former Director, Professor Michael Davies.

Also in this issue, discover how eating increases your blood pressure. Guy Leech gives you some great advice for exercising during the heat of Summer... and of course, your newsletter wouldn't be complete without another delicious and nutritional recipe from the wonderful Kate Freeman.

Thank you so much for your invaluable support of our important cause throughout the year. We wish you and your family all the best for a safe, happy and healthy festive season.
