Health summit set on April 28
THE EXPERTS’ Convergence for Health Outcomes (Echo) Summit will be held on April 28, 2 p.m.-6:30 p.m., at Manila Marriott Hotel’s Grand Ballroom.
Four international experts will discuss relevant topics covering women’s health, psychosocial well-being, diabetes mellitus and heart failure.
Speakers and their topics are: professor Bertram Pitt on the role of mineralocorticoids in the management of heart failure; professor Wilfred Fujimoto will discuss pathophysiology of diabetes in Asians; Dr. Nassir Ghaemi focuses on anxiety and depression in patients with cardiovascular disease; and Dr. Amos Pines will round up the discussion by explaining the cardiometabolic disorders in menopause. Four plenary sessions will be held, each one with a thirty-minute lecture, to be followed by a discussion and open forum. Four equally stellar Filipino physicians will be anchoring each of the sessions: Dr. Eugenio Ramos, Dr. Elizabeth Pacheco, Dr. Annette Bautista and Dr. Delfin Tan.
Echo Summit is a product of Unilab’s commitment in providing world-class and unbiased learning opportunities for the Filipino doctors.
