The European Society of Cardiology organizes educational program in Asia
Date:4/27/2011

Sophia Antipolis, 27 April, 2011: In the context of rising levels of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the Asia Pacific region, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) announces that for the first time- the Society will send an official delegation to participate in the Asia Pacific Congress of Cardiology (APCC). The 18th edition of the APCC meeting will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 5 to 8 May 2011. The ESC deputation will present an educational programme called ESC@APSC on 4 and 5 May that includes an introduction to its latest Clinical Guidelines, observations from relevant ESC case studies and highlights from the ESC Congress 2010.

Representing the ESC will be the President, Professor Michel Komajda, along with members of the ESC Board, and a number of renowned cardiologists including the authors of some of its most recent Guidelines. "It is clear that CVD risk factors are not confined to the western world", says Professor Komajda. "The situation today in Asia Pacific follows a familiar pattern of lifestyle issues that will see sharp increases in CVD similar to those we experienced in Europe. The main causes in both regions are poor diet, lack of exercise, and high consumption of alcohol and tobacco."

The Global Scientific Activities Committee (GSA) of the ESC is making a concerted effort to extend the ESC's scientific activities beyond Europe. Professor Thierry Gillebert from France, a member of the GSA Committee, has helped shape the ESC programme at the APCC. "There is a huge demand for us to share our training, guidelines and knowledge, and one of the most effective ways we can achieve this is through a proactive contribution to meetings such as the APCC," said Prof Gillebert.

The ESC educational programme at APCC comprises a dedicated one and a half day event that provides a detailed overview of its principle activities including the ESC Congress, gives an insight into work on the latest Clinical Guidelines
