The event was able to attract large medical and specialist participation from GCC and MENA Region With more than 550 physical and virtual participants
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in women worldwide.
Women with CVD continue to be under-diagnosed and under-treated due to misconceptions and lack of awareness among both patients and doctors.
Emirates Cardiac Society is thrilled to collaborate with ACC (American College of Cardiology) along with the World Heart Federation and NCD Alliance to be part of launching this important educational program, with support of funding Sponsor “VIATRIS (Mylan+Upjohn, a legacy Division of Pfizer)” of the NCD Academy.
