On behalf of the Joint Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce “The First Asian Cardiovascular Symposium” to be held on Sunday, July 28, 2019 at Westin Boston Waterfront, Boston, Massachusetts. This symposium will be held one day prior to the official BCVS Scientific Sessions (July 29 - August 1; but is not a part of the official BCVS program). The event will be jointly hosted by the following Asian cardiovascular groups: • Academy of Cardiovascular Research Excellence (ACRE)• Japanese Cardiovascular Group (JCS)• Korean Cardiovascular Society (KCS) • South Asian Heart Association (SAHA)
The symposium will provide excellent opportunities to the trainees and early career investigators for both oral and poster presentations, followed by keynote presentations, dinner and award ceremony. It also provides a platform for the reunion of BCVS members, colleagues and friends around the world in the field of cardiovascular sciences. A group of outstanding abstracts will be selected to be presented at the Symposium and will compete for multiple awards. You are cordially invited to participate in this exciting symposium and to promote cardiovascular research excellence. We warmly welcome you to register and submit your abstracts. We look forward to meeting you all in Boston in this summer!
