Dr Nikki Stamp – Can you die of a broken heart?

Mitchell Theatre, Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts NSW Sydney

Thursday September 6th

When actress Debbie Reynolds died a day after her beloved daughter, Carrie Fisher, the world diagnosed it as ‘heartbreak’. But what’s the evidence? Does emotional upheaval affect the heart? Can love, or chocolate, really heal our heart problems? And why do we know so much about heart attacks in men, when they are more fatal in women? Dr Nikki Stamp, one of only a handful of female heart and lung surgeons in Australia, delves into the inner workings of the miraculous human heart.

FREE – Everyone Welcome
