Arlington, Va. (June 9, 2020) The Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) announced plans today to hold the 3rd SCCT Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Symposium in a virtual format. The in-person course planned to take place in Seattle, Wash., has been cancelled, as has the 15th Annual Scientific Meeting.  


The virtual Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Symposium will be held on Saturday, August 15 from 10:30 am to 3 pm EST. The symposium will include the same themes of the in-person meeting, including talks and case based discussions led by prominent leaders in preventive cardiology, as well as live question and answer sessions.


“We are thrilled to offer the Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Symposium in an online format” says SCCT President and Chair of the Prevention Symposium Ron Blankstein, MD, MSCCT. “Prevention is at the core of SCCT’s mission, and we are excited at the prospects of reaching an even wider audience for this special event.   We have an amazing faculty line-up who are sure to make this event highly educational and fun.”  


The virtual interactive symposium – which will feature some of the most prominent leaders in preventive cardiology - will provide an overview of the changing landscape of preventive cardiology and an update on novel therapies and risk assessment tools for preventing cardiovascular disease. Learn how to incorporate the latest advances in pharmacologic and lifestyle interventions for lowering cardiovascular risk.
