Afib Conf.: Learn about patient-driven research

Recommended Posts

Sunday morning at this year’s Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.® Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference, we will continue exploring patient involvement in afib research and how it could ultimately help us better manage our afib.

During the Patient-Driven Afib Research Update, Dr. Bianca J.J.M. Brundel will talk about the role of “citizen science” and give us an update on the GGA/glutamine clinical trial we have helped fund. She will also discuss interim patient-reported outcomes on afib triggers, including stress, pesticides, and Covid-19.

We’re excited to welcome new faculty member Myrthe Kuipers, co-founder of the Atrial Fibrillation Innovation Platform (AFIP) Foundation in the Netherlands to bring afib patient insights into research studies. She will talk about Online Communication to Improve Patient Research Involvement and discuss enhancing afib awareness and patient engagement in afib research and transforming big data into information and health insights to beat afib.

Following their talks, we will have a Q&A with Dr. Brundel and Ms. Kuipers.

Patient-driven research gives us a chance to guide researchers in finding afib treatments and solutions for us, and this session will share some of those results.

See you in just about two weeks!

To your health,


Mellanie True Hills
Founder, StopAfib.org
