Global Collaboration the Focus of ACC Latin America
More than 1,400 clinicians from across Latin American took part in the ACC Latin America 2022 Together with CardioAcademic in Mexico City and virtually in September.
Co-chaired by ACC Vice President B. Hadley Wilson, MD, FACC, and ACC Assembly of International Governors Past Chair Erick Alexanderson, MD, FACC, the event brought together the Latin American cardiology community to discuss the latest cardiovascular science and examine emerging trends and evidence-based strategies for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease.
Participants also had unique opportunities for hands-on learning and to engage with experts from across the region and around the world around hot topics like new clinical guidelines, COVID-19 guidance, care of cardio-oncology patients, and more. Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, MACC, editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, presented the Opening Plenary Session, "New Frontiers in Cardiovascular Health: From the Heart to the Brain."
In addition to educational sessions, new research was also presented around topics like:
- Risk Factor Control After an Acute Coronary Syndrome
- Cannabidiol and Coronary Syndromes, A Systematic Review
- Circadian Rhythm and Metabolic Disorders in Hypertensive Patients
- A Practical Method to Measure Heart Rate Variability in Older Adults Coping with Stress From Venezuela, A Country Collapsed by Severe Humanitarian Crisis and COVID-19 Pandemic
- Educational Intervention on Coronary Risk Factors in Young Patients
"ACC's Vision is a world where science, knowledge and innovation optimize cardiovascular care and outcomes and what better way than getting together at the ACC Latin America regional conference paired with CardioAcademic in Mexico City," Wilson said. "These are two great meeting venues joined together for the best Latin America regional conference with cardiovascular thought leaders, along with other leaders in the Americas creating a dynamic exchange of leading-edge knowledge and practical networking."
