Canada: Québec City to Host Major Medical Conference

The Québec City Convention Centre will host the 5th edition of the ICCR Congress on Chronic Societal Cardiometabolic Diseases this summer.

The conference, originally called the International Congress on Abdominal Obesity, will run July 8-12, 2015. It will bring between 700 and 800 specialists in abdominal obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, nutrition and physical activities to the city. Considered an international scientific event, some forty speakers are already confirmed.

The conference is organized by the International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk (ICCR), a multidisciplinary academic organization based at the Centre de recherché de l’Institut universitaire de cardiologie et de pneumologie de Québec, which is affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine of Université Laval located in Québec City, Canada.

“The fifth edition of this congress will build upon the success of the four previous meetings held in Hong Kong, Buenos Aires, Québec City and Seoul,” says Dr. Jean-Pierre Després, scientific director of the ICCR. “With more than 60 countries involved, the conference has an international flavor and truly fills a need in this area. Over a short period of five years, this new congress has rapidly become the international platform to discuss novel approaches and share scientific and clinical data to benefit healthcare professionals, clinicians and scientists in the fight against a lifestyle epidemic of sedentary behaviours and low quality nutritional habits leading to chronic societal diseases.”

In addition to the Congress, participants will be able to enjoy Québec City’s famous summer music festival, July 9-19, 2015.
