The EAS-FHSC Symposium on FH was held on November 25-27 at the Hilton Warsaw Hotel and Convention Centre in Warsaw, Poland. This 3-day symposium, organized by EAS-FHSC, was attended by physicians, researchers and others involved in the screening, diagnosis and management of patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia.
Attendees shared their knowledge and experiences in both scientific and organizational matters at the Central & Eastern European Key Opinion Leader Summit. Additional lectures and workshops were held on topics including epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis, screening, FH in children, management of FH patients, registries, therapeutic strategies, implementation of guidelines, and severe & Homozygous FH.
We thank everyone who contributed to the meeting’s success and for the interesting discussions, and look forward to continuing to work together to reduce the impact of FH and the global burden of the disease.
