Supporting young professionals in preventive cardiology

Be part of the EAPC Young Community!

The European Association of Preventive Cardiology Young Community brings together leaders of tomorrow in the field of preventive cardiology and rehabilitation.

By being part of this community, you will not only learn from your peers, but also benefit from dedicated networking opportunities. It is a unique chance to enhance the development of your career.

The EAPC supports its young community with:

  • Discounted EAPC Silver Membership
  • Discounted ESC Preventive Cardiology congress registration for EAPC Silver Members under the age of 40
  • Young Investigators Award sessions at ESC Preventive Cardiology congress
