Dr. Bernard Samia, President Kenya Cardiac Society.

Kenya Cardiac Society is the national society for cardiologists and healthcare professionals with special interests in cardiovascular medicine. It is independent, volunteer-led and non-profit. KCS goes back to 1981 and is thus one of the oldest medical societies in the country. KCS works closely with the Ministry of Health and has in the past year worked as experts in facilitating the recently launched Ministry of Health CVD Guidelines. It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to KCS2018. This pivotal event importantly allows health professionals to remain up-to-date with the latest advances in cardiovascular care while networking with top-scientists and physicians from East Africa and across the world. This year KCS2018, has something new. We have organized a registration-free two-track pre-congress workshop, with a limited number of slots. In the Basic Topics in Cardiology, top world-renowned specialists and ESC Fellows will take us through basic principles in cardiology and focus on dilemmas that we face on a daily basis. Concurrently an advanced echo-course led by the US-based authority in echocardiography, cardiologist Bijoy Khandheria will focus on top-of-the-line echo skills. This is yet another opportunity to develop professional relationships which we are sure will boost your career. We, at our end, have spared no effort to connect the smallest threads to yield what promises to be a comprehensive, world class three and half days of KCS Scientific Conference..
