Die Deutsche Herzstiftung (German Heart Foundation)

The German Heart Foundation offers patients information on all questions around cardiovascular diseases. An online consultation as well as a doctors and self-help groups search are part of the services offered by the patient organisation.

DZHK scientists regularly participate in the annual Heart Weeks in November by giving lectures and submitting dossiers. The DZHK publishes periodical articles in the patient magazine "Herz heute".

A large number of the DZHK scientists are honorary members of the Scientific Advisory Board of the German Heart Foundation and are available to answer patients' questions with expert advice.
