EuroPRevent 2013


EuroPRevent 2013

We would like to invite you to EuroPRevent 2013,
 the premiere international forum for Preventive Cardiology!

The congress, organised by the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR), will take place in Rome from 18 to 20 April 2013.

The theme of the congress will be the Universal Approach to Cardiovascular Prevention and Implementation and that is exactly what the congress is about: how we can universally work together in the prevention of cardiovascular disease!

Building on Italy’s emphasis on sports medicine, the congress will open with a Master Class Course on Sports Cardiology, highlighting its importance in prevention and rehabilitation. As this year’s meeting will emphasise the global approaches to prevention, joint sessions with local, European and International Associations will take place on Thursday afternoon, focusing on the various existing prevention and implementation methods and programmes.

On Friday and Saturday, the programme will be dedicated to epidemiological case presentations organised jointly with the ESC National Cardiac Societies to showcase different prevention programmes. There will also be more ‘Focus On’ sessions highlighting the different nutrition and lifestyles across the globe and a key note address from an esteemed member of the Prevention Community.

EuroPRevent 2013 will bring the finest international health experts together to present their research and translate it into usable knowledge for practitioners, health care workers, researchers, and policy makers.The message of prevention starts with all of you and all our combined efforts.

We look forward to welcoming you in Rome, a city full of history, beauty, architecture, hospitality and the Mediterranean diet!
