A warm welcome to WCC 2016 from Johanna Ralston

04 Jun 2016

The World Heart Federation’s official congress, the World Congress of Cardiology & Cardiovascular Health 2016, begins today in Mexico City.


“On the opening day or our biannual Congress, I would like to welcome all of our esteemed speakers, partners, members and colleagues to Mexico City. We have an exciting few days ahead of us with the chance to share the latest thinking, insights and developments in the world of cardiovascular health. It is wonderful that we are able to convene in such a vibrant city and I would like to thank all of the people who have played a part in organizing the event.

“During your time here at WCC 2016, please do remember to visit the World Heart Federation booth 215 where presentations will be taking place in our Arena, you can sign the petition to support a smoke-free Mexico and find out more about the benefits of your organization becoming a WHF member, if you’re not already.

“If you haven’t been able to join us in Mexico, you can still stay up to date with what’s happening throughout WCC 2016. We will be posting news, press releases and photos on our website and Twitter feed, and for our members we will be sending out a daily Congress News.

“Thank you for your continued support for the World Heart Federation, and welcome to the World Congress of Cardiology & Cardiovascular Health 2016.”

Johanna Ralston, CEO, World Heart Federation
