42nd Ten day International Teaching Seminar on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention Hyderabad, India
 
This year IC-Health  got the golden opportunity to organize the “42nd Ten Day International Teaching Seminar on Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and prevention at Aalankrita Resort  Pvt. Ltd  Hyderabad, India, from September 27-October  2009. The seminar was a big success in which more than 40 fellows from different part of the world were trained by more than 10 world renowned faculty.
 
The other international organizations involved in making this a success were International Society of Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention proposes and World Heart Federation. These seminars were founded in 1968 by Professors Jerry and Rose Stamler and Richard Remington from the USA, and Professor Geoffrey Rose from the UK, with support from the International Society and Federation of Cardiology (since 1998, World Heart Federation) Council on Epidemiology and Prevention) and from 2008, the International Society of Cardiovascular Disease Epidemiology and Prevention. This year the council has selected IC Heath as the host to conduct the seminar in India.
 
The main aim of the seminar is to increase the mass of people around the world who have the needed skills to carry out epidemiologic studies and to strengthen the efforts to prevent mass cardiovascular disease.   The founders recognized the need for training in research, and also the constraints on time and resources limiting the ability of workers in less developed countries to obtain this.  They thus developed a ten day course to provide basic training.  To date, over 1300 physicians and scientists from over 100 nations have been fellows of the seminar, and 42 seminars (including this times) have now taken place in 35 different countries.  The basic training is in fundamental epidemiologic principles and methods and biostatistics with focus and practical examples on cardiovascular disease epidemiology and prevention.
