MANILA, PHILIPPINES (Sep 21, 2023) -

The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the Philippine Heart Association will host ACC Asia 2023 on September 29-30 in Manila, Philippines. According to recent research, among the 18.6 million heart disease-related deaths worldwide in 2019, 58% occurred in Asia.  The conference is designed to discuss, share and critique the latest in cardiovascular disease prevention and care to improve heart health and care for patients on the continent with the largest population and diversity of ethnicities, cultures, socioeconomic status and health care systems.

The conference welcomes all members of the cardiac care team in the Asia-Pacific region, including cardiologists, fellows-in-training, nurses, and more. Ronald Cuyco, MD, and Fred M. Kusumoto, MD, FACC, will serve as co-chairs for the conference.

“I am very excited about ACC Asia 2023 and look forward to seeing everyone who is joining us,” Kusumoto said. “This conference, sponsored jointly by the Philippine Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, will bring experts from around the world to share best practices and learn from each other on how to improve cardiac care in Asia and around the world.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to foster connections with leading experts in the field and explore the latest research in heart failure, electrophysiology, health equity, interventional and ischemic heart disease, prevention and more.
