July 20, 2021 THE HEALTH PODCAST # 22 – Keeping your heart healthy
with Dr Michael Papadakis
In this week’s episode, we are joined by Dr Michael Papadakis, a Consultant Cardiologist, specialising in cardiovascular disease prevention, sports cardiology and inherited cardiac conditions. In the UK, it is estimated that over 160,000 people die from heart and circulatory diseases each yea. With this in mind, we are delighted to speak to Dr Papadakis to discuss this tricky subject and explore ways we can keep our hearts healthy and, ultimately, prevent heart disease.
Dr Papadakis was awarded a Fellowship with the European Society of Cardiology in 2016 and is credited with over 80 publications in scientific peer-reviewed journals, having contributed to a number of projects as an expert, including the creation of the Sports Cardiology core curriculum, the creation of the international ECG criteria for an athlete’s evaluation and exercise recommendations in individuals with heart disease. In 2016 he launched a MSc programme in Sports Cardiology, the first postgraduate qualification of its kind.
