About the Event
Hereditary ATTR-CM is a condition associated with heart failure. It is caused by a change (or a “mutation”) in one of your genes, which can be passed down from a relative. In the US, the most common mutation that can cause ATTR-CM is V122i, and it affects Black, African American and Afro-Caribbean people almost exclusively. That’s why Voices for the Heart is dedicated to elevating the experiences and stories of people in your community who are living with ATTR-CM or have a loved one who is experiencing the condition.
