Important update on ESC Preventive Cardiology 2020

European Association of Preventive Cardiology


We regret to inform you that ESC Preventive Cardiology 2020, the scientific congress of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology scheduled for 2 to 4 April in Malaga, will not proceed as planned.

ESC and EAPC leadership have been closely following the recent developments around COVID-19. With severe measures being taken by hospitals to deal with the epidemic, a rapidly growing number of cardiologists have informed us that they are unable to travel. Under the circumstances, cancelling ESC Preventive Cardiology 2020 was deemed the only responsible course of action.

If you have any questions relating to ESC Preventive Cardiology 2020, or COVID–19 and heart disease, please contact us at press@escardio.org or call +337 8531 2036
