European Society of Cardiology Congress Success!

We are pleased to announce we have 7 presentations at this years ESC Congress in Rome.

This year, Cardiovascular Epidemiology at Leeds will have a strong presence at the European Society of Cardiology Congress. We have 7 presentations showcasing our hard work over recent months, including a symposium session in which Dr Gale has been invited to speak about our work drawing comparisons between the UK and Sweden in terms of survival following acute myocardial infarction. In addition, we are pleased to announce Dr Owen Bebb has been one of four people to be shortlisted for the Young Investigators Awards Session in Population Based Sciences Award and Miss Dondo's work has been shortlisted for best poster presentation. 

We are all thoroughly looking forward to the congress in Rome!
