The World Summit on Echocardiography is an educational collaboration by a consortium of Echocardiography Societies, and is scheduled to take place every other year in locations to be determined around the world. The purpose of the Summit is to provide training in parts of the world where that training will make a difference. India’s rapidly growing economy has led to growing affluence and major lifestyle changes, with a dramatic rise in the incidence of cardiovascular diseases. This World Summit will help spur adaptation of standardized guidelines and protocols for cardiovascular care, and ultimately improve the quality of patient care worldwide. This event, organized by the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) in partnership with EAVCI and six other echocardiography societies, will take place October 25-27, in New Delhi, India. The list of daily sessions is online now, and additional information about the World Summit can be found at www.wsecho.org
