The 1st Asian Cardiovascular Symposium at BCVS

Sunday, July 28, 2019 Boston, MA

Dear Colleagues:

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; please note that this is not 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 for both oral and poster presentations, especially for early career investigators, followed by keynote presentations, dinner and award ceremony, for the reunion of BCVS members, colleagues and friends around the world in the field of cardiovascular sciences.

A group of outstanding abstracts submitted to both BCVS and Asian Symposium will be selected to be presented at the Symposium and will compete for Outstanding Oral Presentation and Outstanding Poster Presentation Awards, and Research Excellence Award for Early Career Investigators.

You are cordially invited to join us in promoting this exciting opportunity and cardiovascular research excellence. Do not forget to register and submit your abstracts  during the BCVS abstract submission.

We look forward to meeting you all in Boston in this summer!
