GENEVA, March 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- In 100 days the World Heart Federation, with the support of the Chinese Society of Cardiology and the Chinese Medical Association, will open the World Congress of Cardiology (WCC) Scientific Sessions 2010 in Beijing, China.
Participants from more than 100 countries are expected to attend the first international cardiology congress to take place in China, and it promises to be a truly global event. It will bring together leaders in the cardiovascular disease (CVD) field, and the speakers will include some of the most eminent members of the profession.
The WCC Scientific Sessions 2010 plays a vital role in helping delegates from developed and developing countries to share science, build capacity and grow partnerships. It also presents a key forum to tackle the growing epidemic of CVD in developing nations where the largest burden is seen. The congress strives to unite the voices of societies, foundations and partners to take steps to reverse these trends. It will also incorporate the 3rd International Conference on Women, Heart Disease and Stroke.
Authors from all regions of the world will present more than 2,000 abstracts, and nearly 400 speakers will highlight the latest scientific developments from the cardiology field. The additional focus on intervention, prevention, diagnosis and treatment strategies guarantees a broad programme base.
Join thousands of cardiologists and other healthcare professionals from all over the world to participate in a truly international scientific program in a culturally stimulating environment.
Press registration is free. Journalists can register online through the congress website or on-site in Beijing. Please note: visas are needed for travel to China so advance planning is advised.
