Annual Scientific Meeting SCS
Dear friends and colleagues,
We look forward to your participation in this year's Singapore Cardiac Society (SCS) 28th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM). With the theme "Advances in cardiovascular medicine: the next 50 years", this 2-day programme will touch on the exciting developments and challenges in cardiology. This year's ASM is organized to target your education needs in a rapidly changing landscape of cardiovascular (CV) care.
Key sessions this year include a lunch symposium on "Advances in Heart Failure Management", and a dinner symposium on "Conquering Angina". For the first time, we are conducting a research track focusing on basic CV research in Singapore where you can interact with our CV researchers, and a CV nursing track focusing on cardiac intensive care. Other highlights include sessions on advances in lipid-lowering therapy, managing high-risk ACS patients and cardiometabolic risks. We also have specialised sessions on sports cardiology and advances in treatment of mitral valve diseases.
We are pleased to hold the first American College of Cardiology (ACC) - SCS joint symposium here in this ASM, in which the President of the ACC will grace our meeting and deliver a keynote lecture.
We are also holding an echocardiography pre-congress on the evening of 13th May 2016, where interesting cases will be presented. Moreover, do come and hear the best science from your colleagues in Singapore in the Young Investigator's Award Competition and Free Paper Sessions. We are honoured to have Associate Professor Tan Ru San as the SCS Lecturer, who will give us a lecture on "NOACs: Coming of Age". During the ASM, we are pleased to present this year's Singapore Cardiac Society Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr Joseph Sheares.
Please come and join us in this enriching meeting.
