ACRE-CnAHA Symposium and CnAHA-ACRE “China Night” during AHA
On November 12, we jointly organized 2 events during AHA.
1) “Cardiovascular Research Symposium - The Era of Translational Research” was jointly organized by ACRE-CnAHA. Many thanks to all who participated in organizing, presenting and attending this first joint symposium, in particular, to the Co-Chairs--Drs. Wang Hong, MD, PhD (ACRE), and Cheng Jie, MD, PhD (CnAHA), and to AHA for providing a large meeting room at the Conventional Center. For those who were unable to attend our program physically in Orlando, the CME lectures and YIA presentations can be recaptured online which will be available for review from Jan 1-31, 2012.
2) “China Night” was held at the magnificent Junior Ball Room at the Rosen Center. Among the over 140 attendees are leaders from AHA (President Gordon Tomaselli, Chief Scientific Offer, Vice President for Global Strategies, etc.), Chinese Society of Cardiology (President Hu Dayi, CEO Mary Yin, etc.), World Heart Federation (President Sydney Smith), HRS (President Bruce L. Wilkoff, President-elect Anne Gillis), ACRE (President Sun Zhongjie, etc.), and many of our members, guests and friends. You will see the program and photos at our website (www.cnaha.org). Many thanks to the Co-Chairs, Drs. Jianming Li, and Darrel (Dayue) Duan. We also appreciate the tremendous fund-raising efforts by Drs. Jianming Li, Li Zhang, Jie Cheng, Dali Fan, Zhenguo Liu, etc. for raising over $20,000 to fund these important activities.
Congratulations to our YIA winners. They all got beautiful certificate and Award checks for their science and presentation.
After the event, we received many feedbacks from AHA, CSC, ACRE, our members and guests that these events are simply the best ever! But I do not agree with them and believe the best is still ahead and we hope you can join us again in LA in 2012.
