   2nd GCC Cardiovascular Conference Top

The 2nd GCC Cardiovascular Conference held in Muscat, Oman was organized by the Gulf Heart Association (GHA), which was founded two years ago during the First GCC Cardiovascular Conference held in Doha, Qatar.

All professional medical staff working in the field of cardiovascular medicine in the GCC states, citizens and non-citizens are eligible to apply as members. The By-Laws of the society and membership application form can be accessed on-line at the GHA website at: http://www.gulfheart.org/index.html.

The presidents of regional cardiac societies such as the Arab Heart Association, Egyptian Heart Association, Iranian Heart Association, and Turkish Heart Association attended the meeting. The regional WHO director, Dr. A. Gezairy pledged support to the GHA.

The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) president, Professor Jean-Pierre Bassand met with GHA president, H. E. Dr. H.A. Hajar Albinali, and other GHA officials and discussed the possibility of affiliation.
