The American College of Cardiology will host the second ACC Asia Conference in Shanghai in collaboration with the China Cardiovascular Association and China Heart House from Nov. 30 – Dec. 2, 2018, bringing together top experts to discuss and review new, relevant cardiovascular science pertinent to the region.

Harlan Krumholz, MD, SM, FACC; Aaron D. Kugelmass, MD, FACC; and Ge Junbo, MD, PhD, FACC, will serve as co-chairs of the conference, which will provide a forum to examine evidence-based strategies as well as best practices and clinical decision-making to help the entire cardiovascular care team improve the heart health of patients in the region. During the conferences, attendees will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge in important areas such as prevention, heart failure, arrhythmias and more.

“In recent decades we’ve made huge advancements in the prevention and treatment of heart disease that have led to a steady decline in mortality across the globe,” Kugelmass said. “However, heart disease remains the number one killer in the world, and the strategies to enhance prevention, evaluation and treatment will be different everywhere. The ACC Asia Conference aims to provide a comprehensive review of evidence-based practices and exposure to state-of-the-art updates that clinicians can take home and apply to their communities.”

ACC Past President Kim Allan Williams, Sr., MD, MACC; ACC Chief Innovation Officer John Rumsfeld, MD, FACC; Jeptha Curtis, MD, FACC; Anthony Keech, MBBS; Soot Keng Ma, MD; and Catherine Otto, MD, FACC, will all serve as plenary speakers during the conference. One plenary session will feature a panel of experts discussing leadership. Conference co-chairs Kugelmass and Ge will also serve as plenary speakers.
