News for National Cardiac Society Presidents


Spring Summit,
We are very happy that many of you managed to join us for the two days of the Spring Summit - the mosaic above is a reminder of our time together! Even though we couldn't be in the same place, it was great to see many friends and colleagues online.

The presentations are still available on the Spring Summit platform for everyone to consult.

There was even time for some fun - congratulations to lkay Gücük, the Turkish Society of Cardiology CEO who won second prize in the ESC Congress mastermind quiz.

NCS Forum on Advocacy
Tomorrow, the first National Cardiac Society Forum will take place on the very important topic of advocacy. In this meeting, we will exchange ideas on advocacy and learn what has been achieved by some of our National Cardiac Societies. There is still time to confirm your participation - consult the agenda.

By working together through European and national activities, we can better promote CVD as the major challenge in healthcare and research and attract more attention for our common mission in policy and public. We look forward to seeing many of you online tomorrow.

Best wishes,
