I Heart Dublin
The Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) announced today that it has been selected to host the EuroPRevent 2012 Congress, the premiere international forum for preventive cardiology. The new 2012 European guidelines on the prevention of cardiovascular disease in clinical practice will be launched during the event. Organised by the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation, EuroPRevent is scheduled from 3-5 May, 2012.
“As a professor of cardiology, I have dedicated my career to looking for ways to prevent and fight heart disease and to promote awareness of this issue,” commented Professor Ian Graham, co-chair of the Congress Programme Committee and Local Organiser. “It was a pleasure working closely with the Irish Heart Foundation to help bring EuroPRevent 2012 to Dublin and I look forward to welcoming world experts and international delegates to the city for this important event.”
The Congress will also include dedicated educational and implementation programmes targeted at cardiologists, family doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and voluntary bodies such as Heart Foundations, as well as health planners, local and international politicians, Departments of Health and Health executives.
“As heart disease is Ireland’s number one killer, Dublin seems like a fitting place to host EuroPRevent 2012,” said Catherine Newhall-Caiger, Sales Director, The Convention Centre Dublin. “We are delighted to provide a world-class venue for this prestigious international event, which should help to raise awareness for this, often preventable, condition.”
