JCS at ESC Congress 2017

Each year, Japanese healthcare professionals contribute to the success of ESC Congress. In 2017, the ESC was honoured to receive more abstracts from Japan than from any other country. Indeed, Japan in the number one abstract submitting country to ESC Congress since 2011! We also proud to welcome more than 1,200 Japanese cardiologists to Barcelona this year.

Whether you are attending ESC Congress in Barcelona, or following the congress online, make the most of dedicated activities for Japanese delegates.
