The Panamanian Society of Cardiology was created on 30 May 1969 by a group of 15 Panamanian cardiologists. The emblem of the Society was designed as placing the Isthmus of Panama on a heart. This emblem gave birth to the first scientific event titled: “Three Days of Cardiology” as the first National Congress of Cardiology. Daily conferences were scheduled for three days, with simultaneous translation in the conference of the school of medicine of the University of Panama Hall. The scientific programme as well as the social event was a success.
President Dr. Bey Mario Lombana (1985-1987 and 1990-1992) began events at national level, starting with a seminar on ischemic cardiopathology and arterial hypertension, which was attended by more than 400 doctors in the country. It uses its efforts for the unification of the country cardiologists and the transformation of this medical guild into a major force in Panamanian medicine. He created the Panamanian Journal of Cardiology in 1987 and the first newsletter. He is currently the Editor in Chief.
