Irish Heart Foundation: Events Management Intern

NOTE: This item has expired and will soon be unavailable for viewing.

The Irish Heart Foundation (IHF) is the national charity dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Today in Ireland more people die from heart and stroke-related illnesses than from cancer, road deaths and suicide combined. Against this background we work to bring hope, relief and a better future to families all over Ireland. We give vital patient support through our Heart & Stroke helpline and we provide high quality public information for all.

We support pioneering medical research, campaign for improved patient care, and promote positive public health strategies. We work in hospitals, schools and workplaces to support, educate and train people to save lives. As a charity we are dependent on the generosity of the public to continue our vital good work.  We ask the public to support our work by making a donation, giving of their time to volunteer or by learning the skills needed to save a life through our courses.
