We present a calculation of the heavy quark momentum diffusion coefficients in a strongly magnetized medium, within the Lowest Landau Level (LLL) approximation. In particular, we use the Hard Thermal Loop (HTL) resummed effective gluon propagator, generalized for a hot and magnetized medium. Using this effective HTL gluon propagator along with the LLL quark propagator we analytically derive the full results for the longitudinal and transverse momentum diffusion coefficients for charm and bottom quarks beyond the static limit. Going beyond the static limit of the heavy quark, we also show numerical results for these coefficients in two special cases where the heavy quark is moving either parallel or perpendicular to the external magnetic field.
