THANK YOU FOR JOINING US at Heart Heroes 2017!

Thank you for being the hero in someone's heart health journey.

Heart Heroes is about recognizing those committed to advancing world-class cardiac and vascular care at the QEII Health Sciences Centre and celebrate the Hearts of Gold who make it possible. 

This unforgettable evening of fine wine, heart cuisine and the magical sounds of the Symphony Nova Scotia Orchestra was paired with the Heart of Gold Awards presentation – honouring those who have made a significant contribution to the hearts and health of Atlantic Canadians.

Heart Heroes gathered a community of heroes supporting a major milestone in the QEII Foundation’s From the Heart campaign, transforming cardiac and vascular care at the QEII.
