The association between circulatory risk factors and pathologies and the COVID-19 pandemic is becoming more obvious as more people affected receive treatment worldwide. Each member of the Global Coalition for Circulatory Health (GCCH), which brings together international, regional and national stakeholders in circulatory health to drive the urgent action needed to combat heart disease and stroke, has been working actively within its own speciality and constituencies to provide relevant and timely information related to the crisis.
There is, however, a unique opportunity for GCCH to provide a comprehensive and global perspective on circulatory risk factors, such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and tobacco use, and outcomes, including renal failure, vascular problems, and cardiovascular disease, associated with COVID-19.
We are therefore delighted to invite you to join our upcoming webinar series, moderated by the Past President of the World Heart Federation, Prof David Wood.
The recordings of all the webinars are available below.
