Prof. Martin Halle
I am Martin Halle, Professor at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, where I lead the department of Prevention and Sports Medicine of the University Hospital ´Klinikum rechts der Isar´. I am a cardiologist and sports medicine specialist by training and am interested in primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease as well as sports cardiology.
My vision is to broaden the spectrum of EAPC by addressing topics relevant for our association, but not yet covered sufficiently at congresses, within the journal or within the community. Moreover, it is my intention to stimulate interaction between EAPC sections, committees, task forces, our Young Community and with experts in respective fields from outside our association to gather cross-sectional expertise within established as well as novel focus areas.
This approach will hopefully foster a comprehensive approach on specific topics (e.g. risk factors, nutrition, child health) covered from a public health perspective as well as the primary and secondary prevention and the sports cardiology aspects.
The five tasks have been identified to be the key strategic focal points during the next two years:
We have a busy schedule ahead and will “keep running” to place primary and secondary prevention at the heart of cardiology – where it belongs!
Come and join us!
