  • YOU CAN’T PAUSE A HEART: campaign of ESC

    This week, the European Society of Cardiology has launched a campaign to draw attention to the timely recognition of a heart attack, also in COVID-19 times. Their main message is that the heart continues to be a priority throughout the pandemic and that everybody should seek care without delay if symptoms of a heart attack are experienced. Moreover, they encourage patients with a chronic heart condition to attend follow-up appointments and take their medication.

    Below you can find the website, on which an infographic and more resource materials can be found, and the awareness video of the campaign.

    The BSC conference 2021 will take place on 11th and 12th February 2021.

    Due to the continued escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic situation, it has been decided to change the format of the BSC congress, as unfortunately, we cannot hold our normal in-person meeting. Therefore, the 2021 congress will be offered as a virtual event. Registration is free!

    The BSC congress always attracts a large multidisciplinary audience. The 2020 congress theme “Heart Health Matters in perspective” is being continued in 2021, with a comprehensive two-day program devised by leading experts. It will provide opportunities for skills development, thoughtful dialogues/debates, and networking opportunities for the cardiologist community.
