On June 5-6 2018 the XI International Conference "PREVENTIVE CARDIOLOGY 2018" organized by the National society of preventive cardiology was held in Moscow. This Conference has long been a good tradition - last year we celebrated its tenth anniversary. The Conference was held under the auspices of Ministry of Healthcare of the Russian Federation and the Moscow Department of Healthcare. The Conference was also supported by other professional communities – the Russian Society of Cardiology, the Russian Scientific Medical Society of Therapists and the National Atherosclerosis Society.

Among those who gave a welcoming speech at the Conference opening were the first Deputy Chairman of Committee on health protection of State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences N.F. Gerasimenko; Deputy Head of the Moscow Department of Healthcare E.Y. Khavkina; Chairman of Committee for Healthcare and Public Health Protection of the Moscow City Duma L.V.

Boytsov. The Deputy Director of the Department of medical care organization and health resort of the Russia healthcare Ministry E.K. Vergazova combined the welcome speech with an excellent report on current state of preventive care in Russian Federation.

The Conference covered an extremely wide range of issues related to cardiovascular diseases prevention and treatment. The latest digital and telemedicine technologies, cardiooncology and genetics, psychological aspects of heart diseases and communication issues between doctor and patient and important issues of sports cardiology were discussed. A key place in the scientific program was devoted to the presentation of new National recommendations on cardiovascular prevention, which were devoted two special symposiums and also a report in the plenary meeting. It should be noted that the issues discussed covered various medical care aspects for patients of all age groups – from children to 80+, and in all these categories high technology and relatively simple and inexpensive preventive interventions were considered.

Throughout the all years that the Conference has been held, the interest of the international community in it remains. This year three reports of international experts were included in the scientific program of the Conference. Professor Friedrich Köhler from the world-renowned Berlin clinic Charite, who spoke about the telemedicine possibilities in heart failure, Professor Ian Bruthans from Charles University in Prague and Professor Piotr Jankowski from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow. The last two experts spoke about the experience of treatment and secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases in their countries. The opportunity to experience exchange at the international level is truly invaluable, because we all deal with the same problems, with all the many local features of health systems, differences in cultures, traditions, habits of people from different countries and even genetic characteristics.

The XI International conference "PREVENTIVE CARDIOLOGY 2018" was attended by about 70 speakers, among whom were such famous domestic specialists as S.A. Boytsov, R.G. Oganov, N.V. Pogosova, O.M.

On the first day of the Conference, very young researchers – V.Y. Duminskiy from Tula and M.G. Brynza from Kirov, who are still studying at medical Universities, received incentive prizes for a promising start. On the second day, O.V. Kozhevnikova who presented a study on the prevalence of risk factors in schoolchildren became such a leader.
