About the World Congress of Cardiology

From 1950 to today, from Paris to New Orleans, the World Heart Federation’s World Congress of Cardiology (WCC) has been a key event on the cardiovascular calendar, offering a truly global perspective on cardiovascular health and bringing together thousands of cardiology professionals from all over the world, with the common goal of reducing the global burden of cardiovascular disease.

This year, we are thrilled to bring the World Heart Federation’s unique global perspective to the American College of Cardiology’s Annual Scientific Sessions. Join us from 4 to 6 March 2023 to discover the latest in global cardiovascular health!
