Have you ever wondered how doctors calculate your heart health?

Did you know researchers from the University of Cambridge’s Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit can predict if you are likely to get heart disease in the next 10 years? These technologies are critical for deciding who needs preventative medication to prevent disease.

In this family-friendly card game, you will learn all about cardiovascular disease risk prediction and how it can identify adults who are at risk of developing heart diseases. You will be able to determine which of your favourite characters or celebrities have the healthiest heart according to their medical charts! You will step into the shoes of a scientist and determine how much we can trust these computer-calculated predictions, their strengths and where they fall short.

After this activity, you will be able to make better decisions to keep your heart healthy!
