OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
“Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is the biggest killer in Europe, with a huge impact on the economy,” said ESC President Professor Panos Vardas. “ It is our belief that public policies must be put in place to encourage its prevention. We have come to Brussels to be more active in the decision-making process.”
“Experience shows that science is not enough,” said Professor Vardas. “All the evidence shows that we need to exercise more, eat less, reduce alcohol consumption and stop smoking. Unfortunately this knowledge has had little impact on the rates of CVD related morbidity and mortality. We have not been as successful in primary prevention as we have been with treatments and secondary prevention. Individual approaches have not been enough, the way forwards is for policies to be put in place in order to encourage populations to choose the healthy options,” said Professor Vardas.
“Another important objective is to regroup all ESC activities concerning education. We will establish the European Heart Academy which will include our activities regarding accreditation, certification, continuous medical development, relationship with universities and also courses resulting in post-graduate certification,” declared Professor Vardas.
