Once again, ACC’s global outreach takes shape with 25 international programs planned for ACC.17. The International Perspectives program features representation by 38 international societies. The program’s coordinated pairing of different countries according to their topic choices produces cohesive sessions that relate to specific topics addressed in the ACC.17 learning pathways. Each of the 19 sessions includes a US speaker and is co-chaired by the president or another representative from the countries’ national societies along with a US co-chair.

Multiple joint international society programs are featured every day at ACC.17. The European Society of Cardiology joins ACC for two symposia again this year, and don’t forget the Annual Maserio Florio lecture on Saturday, March 18, 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. The International Perspectives program provides you with an opportunity to learn more about cardiovascular disease concerns in other parts of the world and how CV professionals in those regions cope with those concerns. Take advantage of the many sessions that are offered to meet, network, and share information with cardiovascular professionals from around the world.
