29th great wall International conference GWICC

GW-ICC 2017 – The ACC’s D2B Alliance for Quality Initiative How Professional Organizations Can Make a Difference

ACC @ GW-ICC Joint Forum – Great Wall International Congress of Cardiology (GW-ICC) 2017 – The ACC’s D2B Alliance for Quality Initiative How Professional Organizations Can Make a Difference

It has become a tradition for world renowned cardiology associations to send delegations to GW-ICC congresses.

Professor Jeroen J. Bax, President, European Society of Cardiology (ESC), Professor John Warner, President, American Heart Association (AHA), and Professor Mary N. Walsh, President, American College of Cardiology (ACC), led delegations attending the 28th GW-ICC, to present latest international guidance, cutting-edge diagnosis and information on treatment with emerging technologies.

Cooperation with these international societies is not limited to their attendance at GW-ICC; GW-ICC also holds reciprocal academic sessions at the annual meetings of these eminent societies, for example GW-ICC @ ACC, GW-ICC @ AHA, and GW @ ESC, to introduce important Chinese academic research.

At the 28th GW-ICC in 2017, the ACC @ GW-ICC Joint Forum, which was held over three sessions, focused on population health, guidelines and real-world evidence; cardiovascular disease prevention: hypertension, smoking cessation and blood lipid management and systems of STEMI care.

A video of one of these 2017 sessions is now available to view on the GW-ICC YouTube channel:

The ACC’s D2B Alliance for Quality Initiative How Professional Organizations Can Make a Difference

Presenter: John E, Brush Jr., MD, FACC, Eastern Virginia Medical School, VA, USA.
