The UK Kawasaki Disease Foundation
Kawasaki Disease has many effects on a child and as such a multi-disciplinary approach to research/care is needed for this disease. Societi is supported by the phenomenal clinical expertise of:
Prof Robert Tulloh; MA DM FRCPCH Consultant in Paediatric Cardiology and Pulmonary Hypertension, Clinical Lead, Paediatric Cardiac Services, Bristol Royal Hospital for Children
Prof Paul Brogan; Professor of Vasculitis and Honorary Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist, Great Ormond Street Hospital
Prof Michael Levin; Professor of Paediatrics & International Child Health, Imperial College London
Only by working and acting together can we overcome the immediate threat that Kawasaki Disease presents.
Kawasaki Disease is the leading cause of acquired heart disease in children in the UK.
...it's time we changed that.
