To celebrate the World Heart Federation World Congress of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Health 2018, which will take place 5-8 December in Dubai, a special reception was organized during the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Barcelona.
The ESC Congress is visited by more than 32,000 cardiologists from all over the world and we were delighted to welcome to our reception continental and national society and foundation representatives from every region.

Professor Mohamad Zubaid, President of the Gulf Heart Association, also talked briefly about our Congress scientific programme which promises to be one of our most diverse yet.
At the end the event, Professor David Wood, President of the World Heart Federation, thanked both the Emirates Cardiac Society and Gulf Heart Association for their partnership with WHF and once again invited everyone to attend WCC 2018.
