Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide in the last 15 years, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Only in Mexico, last year, deaths caused by heart disease reached 141 thousand 619, according to data from the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI). Ischemic heart disease has had the highest incidence of death from age 45.
Since it is a topic of great interest to different nations, the American Heart Association will hold scientific sessions in which the latest news will be discussed to combat this problem.
One of these meetings will be held from November 10 to 12 in the city of Chicago, in the United States, where health professionals will analyze innovations in the control of cardiovascular, renal and metabolic diseases.
The discussions will analyze the trends in "digital health", from healthcare specialists, Silicon Valley CEOs and emerging startups, as the minds behind the programs that are impacting this sector.
The six sessions that the event will have will show the prevention, technology, research and results at the forefront, and will be present scientists who will discuss the most recent publications related to these diseases.
There will also be areas designed for nurses and other health professionals, where progress will be presented as recommendations that they can implement in their daily practice.
The event will reward those researchers who, through their work, have reached the impact to combat these conditions. According to the website of the event, this award allows us to evaluate the work of these professionals and motivate them to continue their research.
