Join C3 for a breakfast-time talk with guests Carys Barton and Dr. Susan Piper where we will be discussing heart failure and the return to work.

What is heart failure? What are its symptoms and how can it be managed? What are the psychological impacts? What special considerations do we need to take into account if we’re taking care of somebody with heart failure or recovering from it?
