Announcing Heart Talks: A Series of the 5th Global Summit on Circulatory Health

24 Aug 2020

Since 2016, the World Heart Federation has been convening leaders and innovators in cardiovascular health at its annual Global Summit on Circulatory Health.

The Summit is an exclusive annual event where government, civil society, industry, and academia from around the world come together to discuss, debate and explore the future of cardiovascular health.

This year, due to exceptional circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the in-person 5th Global Summit scheduled to take place October in Washington, D.C.

However, not being able to meet in person does not mean we will stop advocating for the health workforce.

This year, the 5th Global Summit is spinning off into an innovative webinar series called Heart Talks: A Series of the 5th Global Summit on Circulatory Health:

  • 4 one-hour long interactive webinars
  • Accessible to everyone, everywhere – both live and recorded
  • Held every two weeks between October – November
  • Including topics on CVD management in the post COVID-19 era and the role of the health workforce, the impact of telemedicine and AI, and the importance of adequate financing for health in times of economic instability
