Chairman’s message

It gives me pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the 12th Annual Gulf Heart Association and 4th Kuwait Cardiac Society Conference to be held in Kuwait during March 4-7, 2015. The Amir of Kuwait his Highness Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah may Allah protect him bestowed upon us the honor of being the patron for our conference. The last time the annual GHA meeting took place in Kuwait was in 2007 and it was well attended. This annual GHA gathering is an opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from the region.

This year we have expanded the conference to include 4 workshops and have dedicated one full day for our pediatric cardiology colleagues. For the first time, the meeting will highlight recently-conducted large regional studies in a dedicated session. Also for the first time, in collaboration with the American College of Cardiology, we have built a “Cardiology for the internist” session that will address clinical issues internists face on a daily basis. In addition, there is an extensive and exciting adult cardiology program that will include joint GHA/ESC session, ESC blood pressure council session, and sessions addressing acute coronary syndromes, structural heart disease, cardiovascular imaging, prevention and heart failure.

Early March is a good time to visit Kuwait as the weather is beautiful and the country is celebrating its National day. On behalf of my colleagues at the Conference Management Committee, I would like to welcome and thank in advance our speakers and guests and hope you would give us the chance to welcome you again in Kuwait.
