VIDEO: ESC program chair offers takeaways from this year’s sessions

September 2, 2015

LONDON — In this video, Geneviève Derumeaux, MD, PhD, FESC, chair of the European Society of Cardiology Congress Program Committee, reviews some of the highlights of ESC Congress 2015, which drew a record crowd of 33,000.

Derumeaux, from Université Paris Est Créteil – Hôpitaux Universitaires Henri Mondor, Créteil, France, said the 2015 congress marked the first time the ESC focused on the theme of environment and the heart, noting that there were presentations on the CV impact of air pollution and other environmental factors. One result, she said, is that ESC members and other attendees were invited to participate in a postcard-writing campaign to the European Commission to raise awareness about how environmental factors can be risk factors for heart disease.
