Dedicated to the early diagnosis and treatment of heart disease and stroke.
Cardiovascular disease is the main cause of death and disability in the Western world.
Nearly half of us will die from the disease, usually by suffering a stroke or heart attack and probably without showing any symptoms beforehand.
CORDA was established to find a way of detecting the disease at an early stage by the use of fast, painless and non-invasive means and then to reverse the disease.
CORDA set out to answer the following important questions:
- Have I got the disease?
- Is it going to kill me?
- Can something be done about it?
- Is it possible to monitor the effectiveness of treatment?
In May 2014, CORDA was integrated into Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals Charity, as both charities share such similar aims and values.
