Scientific Programme

ESC Preventive Cardiology 2024, Athens, 25-27 April

Discover the scientific programme

Join us to learn on the latest science changing practice and ask your questions to the experts.

Applause-ESC-Preventive-1500x1000.pngFrom cardiologists, general practitioners, basic scientists, young researchers, policymakers and allied health professionals such as our colleagues in physiotherapy, psychology, nursing and nutritional science, we’ll be able to meet together to discover the very latest science in preventive cardiology, hear inspiring speakers, learn about innovations changing practice and much more.

The spotlight this year is "Cardiovascular risk, the heart and beyond”

The heart and circulation do not function in isolation, but are in constant crosstalk with multiple organs: with the liver and kidneys, with the brain, skeletal muscle and adipose tissue, just to name a few. The function of these organs and their interaction with the heart and circulation shapes the development of cardiovascular risk in each individual, and also enables preventive approaches and interventions. Let’s therefore look at the heart and beyond at ESC Preventive Cardiology 2024 in order to tackle cardiovascular risk!

EAPC brings together all these aspects and is proud to work together with our friends from allied specialities to combat cardiovascular risk in our societies.
