SMILE for Youth@Heart
Alice was born with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD)
She would be very frightened trying to live in a world with COVID-19. Alice would want to care and support other young people with CHD.
These young people live with the fear and anxiety of the impact that covid-19 could have on their health -worried about whether their hearts will be strong enough to cope, and many are dealing with this significant challenge, by themselves, in isolation.
Alice would be very proud and appreciative of, Drs Paul Kai Foster, Muntasha Quddus, Angeliki Kosti, Chessi Guest, John Pascoe & many others who have have spent a large part of lockdown providing free access daily lectures for medical students via SMILE: Sustaining Medical education In a Lockdown Environment.
As part of the doctors’ lockdown activities they have been supporting charities and we are really excited that they have now chosen to support us at Youth@Heart
