Welcome to a 3-day Symposium on FH, taking place from Friday November 25- Sunday November 27, 2016 at the Hilton Warsaw Hotel and Convention Centre in Warsaw, Poland.
Who should attend?
This 3-day course is organised by EAS-FHSC and is targeted towards physicians, researchers and others involved in the screening, diagnosis and management of patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia.
A preliminary Programme for the Symposium is available.
The programme is structured to include Plenary lectures & interactive discussion Workshops, and we are pleased to include the leaders in the FH field as participating faculty.
The programme features topics including epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis, screening, FH in children, management of FH patients, registries, therapeutic strategies, implementation of guidelines, severe & Homozygous FH.
Integral to the Programme are case-study discussion sessions - stimulating exchange of scientific knowledge and practical & organisational experience. These sessions give attendees the opportunity to compare and evaluate the management of FH patients from different European perspectives, and share best practice.
