Charity information: Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)

Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) logo
  • Need


    CRY believes it is important for people in the medical and cardiology field to learn about the symptoms and signs of a cardiac condition in order to reduce the incidence of young sudden cardiac death. It is also important for them to know the best ways in which to manage individuals with inherited cardiac conditions.


    The CRY Conference creates an opportunity for all those involved in the care of athletes and young individuals, to gain up to date knowledge on the effects of athletic training and the diagnosis and management of individuals with inherited cardiac diseases.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Educate those in the medical community about young sudden cardiac death and cardiac screening


    » Hold the CRY Conference and host talks about updates in sports cardiology and cardiac conditions

    What success will look like

    This would be hard to demonstrate as it would be for those attending the conference to utilise what they learnt from the Conference in their own clinics/workplace

  • Impact


    It will mean that those in the medical field will have a better understanding of cardiac conditions and how to treat them, which will mean that patients will have a better standard of care. It will also educate those attending of the symptoms of someone having a cardiac condition, which would lead to a reduction in young sudden cardiac death




    By providing information about the number of delegates attending and also including feedback from those attending
