Annual Scientific Meeting 2023

29 November 2023

The Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh



We are inviting you to join us in the historic capital of Scotland for the SHARP & Scottish Lipid Forum Annual Scientific Meeting which will take place on Wednesday 29th November 2023. We will be returning to the Royal College of Physicians, set in the heart of Edinburgh's city centre.

The main theme for the meeting is ‘The Impact of Environmental Pollution on Cardiovascular Disease’ and we are delighted to share the draft programme with you.

Why should you register for this meeting?

Cardiovascular disease, diabetes and all their various clinical manifestations remain one of the most important and frequent seen disease categories in everyday medical practice. Understanding your patients risk of a future cardiovascular event and how we as clinicans can reduce that risk is important to the future well being of our patients. This year we focus on how the changes in our environment such as pollution impact on CV disease and what you can do about it in your practice

Each year our annual conference brings together professionals, educators, students and institutions from a variety of healthcare sectors, to share, collaborate and network.
