Our Program

 

There is a global epidemic in cardiovascular and peripheral vascular diseases. National Health Institute (NIH) named Puerto Rico number one in the incidence of metabolic arteriosclerotic syndrome and diabetes. Our experts will provide statistical data to make us realize that we must educate physicians, paramedical personnel, health providers and government officials as a national need. Prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases in Puerto Rico is no longer an option but a necessity.

Objectives

This interdisciplinary two days summit will expose the participant to the newest endovascular and cardiovascular technologies. All participants will be together in a plenary session to discuss formal presentations, round table discussions and complicated clinical cases with a panel of experts. Also, the participant will acquire knowledge on how to make prevention and early diagnosis in cardiovascular diseases, learn about new cutting edge endovascular technologies and novel strategies in pharmacological management of diseases.


 

Welcome

 

On behalf of the Society for Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases I would like to cordially invite you to join us for our 8th Congress to be held at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico on May 5 & 6, 2017. We are focused on promoting an interdisciplinary approach to the treatment of cardiovascular conditions. Our mission is to educate by presenting new cardiovascular technologies in the field of endovascular interventions, pharmacological treatment and amputation prevention. NACET 2017, New Advances in Cardiovascular and Endovascular Technologies, brings together key disciplines in order to provide total cardiovascular care with an interdisciplinary teamwork approach.

This year we are focused in extending our message to the healthcare community in order to empower them in vascular care, that way we can reduce the number of strokes, cardiac infarcts and limb loss in our island, Puerto Rico.

I hope you can join us in this achievement.

Best regards,
