Welcome from the Meeting President

Dear Colleagues,

Dr. Simon RabkinI am inviting you to participate in an exciting opportunity to attend a meeting on Cardiovascular Risk and Cardiovascular Diseases. Hypertension is a key factor leading to arterial disease with its consequences on the brain, heart, kidney and other organs. While focusing on hypertension, ISH 2010 will be inclusive of diabetes mellitus, obesity, dyslipidemia and other factors that contribute to the development of the leading cause of death and disability in many countries and a growing cause of morbidity and mortality in many other countries.

ISH 2010 plans to have the highest level scientific meeting that will encompass the spectrum of molecular and cellular science, clinical medicine and population and health policy. It will permit basic scientists, clinicians and population health specialists to attend different streams and learn the latest information on cardiovascular biology and medicine through a cutting edge program. Regardless of your specific interest in the field, all health professionals interested in understanding managing and preventing cardiovascular disease will find the program enriching and educational.

An international meeting serves the function of bringing together people from around the world to permit an exchange of ideas to the lasting benefit of our countries.

Vancouver is a beautiful city surrounded by spectacular scenery. It is the site of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Before and after the meeting, there are opportunities to cruise the ocean, visit mountains and enjoy the events around our city and country.

I know that you will enjoy the meeting. It will be a memorable event and I hope to see you in Vancouver September 26th to 30th, 2010.

Dr Simon Rabkin
President, ISH 2010 Executive Organizing Committee
