Dear Colleagues

The Cardiovascular Academy Association has been growing rapidly in a short period of four years, with a large number of members from more than 100 countries. An important mission of our society is to represent and support young cardiologists for building a successful career and network worldwide. For this reason, The Young Academy of Cardiology was founded in July, 2018 for being the voice of all young doctors working in fields of cardiology from all over the world.

We would like to invite you to join the 1st International Young Academy of Cardiology Congress with the theme: “Bridging in Cardiac Practice" which will be held on 18-22 September 2019 in Northern Cyprus, Bafra region which is located on the Karpas Peninsula. Karpas Peninsula is a long, finger-like peninsula that is one of the most prominent geographical features of the island of Cyprus.

Our program contains new developments along with a carefully selected balance of main, parallel and practical sessions, excellent workshops/courses and didactic lectures provided by the world’s top experts and scientists. In this meeting, we are honored to share the preliminary results of the Boomerang ACS study, which has been attended by 75 researchers from 35 countries. The Scientific Committee also welcomes you to submit your abstract(s) for oral or poster presentation.

We look forward to welcoming you to North Cyprus with the best view of the Mediterranean Sea in September.
