Like Mother, Like Child
Professor Paul Leeson, Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine, University of Oxford, Senior Fellow, British Heart Foundation and Head of Oxford Cardiovascular Clinical Research Facility will talk about links between the cardiovascular health of the mother and their child. Up to 10% of pregnancies are complicated by high blood pressure in the mother. Increasingly, it is being appreciated that this problem identifies both a mother and child at risk of high blood pressure at other times in life. An understanding of the biological links between mother and child, which may influence later blood pressure, is being used as a means to develop more effective prevention approaches for later cardiovascular disease.
