Message from the Chairman, Scientific Committee, CSICON2019, Delhi
Heartiest thanks and regards to you all for electing me as the President Elect of CSI.
Our resolution as a group or society is for a better tomorrow. We have the skill and zeal to scale new heights of Citius (swiftness), Altius (height) and Fortius (strength) and to have a quantum leap forward in the positive space, even if we are imperfect and bounded by limitations.
Your blessings, love, affection, sincerity, devotion and commitment will not go in vain as you can fathom it from the scientific theme of CSI 2019 being Challenges, Controversies and Cutting-edge Cardiology for masses. The whole program has attempted to take our country and CSI a huge step forward with India-specific affordable, modern and advanced CV care.
There will be CME for all to update their knowledge essential for day-to-day practice of common CV problems with algorithmic approach. There will be demonstrations of various nitty-gritty’s of Interventional Cardiology, Echocardiography, Imaging, Electrocardiology & Electrophysiology and Rheumatic HD. The Presidential Oration, Presidential Conclave, Key Note Addresses, Masters’ speeches, CSI B.C. Roy Oration and Award and other important awards will enthral you. You shall be able to shake your hands with Prof. Ferid Murad, Nobel Laureate, who shook the world with his epoch-making discovery. He will address in the plenary session on 6th & 7th December, 2019.
Post-graduates will be learning from the Masters in dedicated Sessions.
There will be ESC@CSI, ACC@CSI, APSC@CSI, DST GOI@ CSI and ICC@CSI joint sessions where the focus will be on Contemporary issues in Cardiology. The Cutting-Edge Digital Cardiology, a new addition to our conference as a step to future practice should not be missed. Women’s hearts are tormented by diseases in no lesser extent. So WINCAR@CSI session will highlight those special issues.
CSI Indian Innovator Award will be another attempt to show case India. The extraordinary response from the Indian Cardiologists is an eye-opener which has overwhelmed the Scientific Committee. A special session in an exclusive hall had to be arranged on 8th of December, 2019. Those missing this session will have to grumble, since future of management principles by Indian Cardiologists will be laid down there. The best awardee will be given a citation and a cheque of INR one lakh in the plenary session. Don’t miss the crisp Highlight Session on 8th December.
CSI Cardiology Update 2019, prepared with passion and meticulousness has been prefaced by Prof. Ferid Murad and Prof. M Khalilullah. Those attending the conference will treasure it since the challenges, controversies and cutting-edge -cardiology have walked with hands in hands.
The unstinted support from an excellent Scientific and Cardiology Update 2019 teams led by Dr. Pradip Kumar Deb, Dr. Debabrata Roy, Dr. Kajal Ganguly and others will be unforgettable.
Prof K.C. Goswami, President and Organising Chairman and Prof Rakesh Yadav, Editor, IHJ and Organising Secretary and the whole organising team have arranged for an excellent ambience for the scientific sessions, the back bones for any conference.
Long live Cardiological Society of India. Jai Hind.
