The American College of Cardiology New York Cardiovascular Symposium will be held 7–9 December midtown Manhattan (New York, USA) to provide clinicians with in-depth reviews of the latest science and cutting-edge advances in cardiology, while offering guidance on effectively translating the latest research into daily practice.
Led by course director, Valentin Fuster (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, Zena and Michael A. Wiener Cardiovascular Institute, New York, USA), the symposium will feature three days of focused seminars and panel discussions on specific cardiac conditions, including Cardiovascular and Coronary Artery Disease-Challenges in 2018; Cardio-Pulmonary and Electrical Failure 2018; and Year in Review: The Nine Highlights of Progress in 2018.
Special prevention session
On Saturday, the session “Trends and Challenges of Approaching Preventing – Health Factors” will offer a more in depth look into the Journal of the American College of Cardiology’s eight-part health promotion series that was published earlier this fall. Fuster will lead off the session with a seminar on four challenges to enhancing the eight health factors for heart disease prevention. A presentation on each health factor will follow and a panel discussion will close out the session.
New this year, the 9 December session will be streamed live on ACC’s Facebook page. Those unable to attend in person will be able to watch The Henry Russek Lecture on “The Future of Children Operated for Congenital Heart Disease: Evolving of Heart Teams Integrated by Paediatric and Adult Cardiologists,” given by Carole Warnes (Mayo Clinic) and The Paul Dudley White Lecture titled, “From Bioprosthetic Valves to Bioprosthetic Hearts – The CARMAT Project,” presented by Alain Carpentier (Hôpital Européen Georges Pompidou).
