Fourth EAS Paediatric FH symposium

Satellite meeting to the 89th virtual EAS Congress in Helsinki, May 29th, 2021


Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the European Atherosclerosis Society and the organising committee, we would like to invite you to join us at the resceduled 4th EAS Paediatric Familial Hypercholesterolemia Satellite Symposium, which will be a virtual meeting on Saturday May 29th as part of the virtual EAS congress in Helsinki.

In this changing world, staying healthy has never been more important. Prevention of cardiovascular disease has always been the main goal of the management of children with FH, with early identifcation of affected individuals being a key strategy. As you can see in the enclosed program, this symposium will adress several hot topics covering universal screening, safety and efficacy of lipid lowering drugs and update of FH genetics, given by renowned speakers, who have all confirmed their enthusiastic participation. We hope to attract over 100 colleagues involved in this field, for what should prove to be an exciting forum and exchange of ideas. As well as plenary talks, there will be 3 parallel sessions covering different aspects of Paediatric FH with an extended Q&A session at the end. You can choose which one to attend (and catch up with the presentations in the others at a later time). You will also be invited to decide your treatment strategies in several paediatric clinical scenarios, which will be discussed in the final plenary session.

We hope you can join us in this exciting symposium and we kindly ask you to register by April 30. The symposium is free to attend and you will find the programme in the registration link.
