Saturday 8th - Sunday 9th April 2017
The University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa
Professors Derek Yellon (UCL), Lionel Opie (UCT) & Sir John Cunningham (UCL) have announced that the annual ‘Cardiology, Diabetes & Nephrology at the Limits’ meeting will be held at the University of Cape Town, South Africa in 2017. The meeting aims to set new standards in medical education for these closely linked disease areas and a world class faculty is being assembled to present and discuss leading edge developments in their specialities.
The meeting is again supported and endorsed by The Lancet medical journal and its Editor-in-Chief, Dr Richard Horton. In 2017 the event is also supported by Brigham & Women’s Hospital and their leading Professors; Peter Libby & Marc Pfeffer. As with all ‘At the Limits’ meetings, attendance will be strictly limited to maintain the intimate atmosphere and to engender the fierce discussion and debate which has become the hallmark of these events
Professor Yellon commented “for many years we ran these events separately, but the cross-over is now more distinct than ever and it has become advantageous to combine the educational aspects of both meetings. I’m also very excited that the speakers who address the meetings allow us to feature their presentations on the ‘At the Limits’ website, along with the website of our partner in the series, The Lancet“.
