EAS Joint sessions with other Societies
Share |

Educational activities for EAS members are central to EAS' mission - to exchange knowledge on the natural history, causes, treatment and prevention of atherosclerosis-related disease. We also believe that it is important to work together with members of related learned and professional societies - to co-organise with them sessions at Congress, and share and exchange knowledge with a wider audience.

Forthcoming Joint Sessions

March 18-20, Prague, Czech Republic
EAS session at the 4th Annual Congress ESVM&ANGIO2018 Symposia

The Symposia includes a European Atherosclerosis Society session on "Recent advances in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease prevention".

Recent advances in atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease prevention

  • Guidelines and cardiovascular disease prevention: What should an angiologist focus on?
  • New and powerful tools how to substantially improve the risk of our patients (not only) with PAD
  • How to wisely choose appropriate nutraceuticals in cardiovascular disease risk management

To the preliminary programme, including the EAS session.

May 05-08, Lisbon, Portugal
EAS 2018 Congress

During the meeting we will explore the latest top research into the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease, with workshops organised together with the International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC).
