We are honored and delighted to announce the return of our annual MIDDLE EAST MEDICAL ASSEMBLY (MEMA). This year, the conference will be held from May 9 to 12, 2024, at the American University of Beirut. The 51st MEMA is themed “The Modern Fight Against Cardiovascular Diseases”.

This upcoming edition of MEMA will feature two parallel sessions: one session will address cardiovascular diseases in primary care which will target general internists, primary care and emergency physicians, nurses, pharmacists, scientists, residents, fellows, and medical students. The other concomitant session will address advances in cardiovascular diseases which will target cardiovascular specialists and other healthcare professionals. The main disciplines will include Cardiology, Cardiothoracic surgery, Vascular surgery, Vascular medicine, and Translational research. Main topics will include heart failure and cardiomyopathies, congenital heart disease, coronary artery disease, acute coronary syndrome, valvular heart disease, electrophysiology, primary and secondary prevention, multimodality imaging, coronary revascularization, structural heart disease intervention, vascular medicine, peripheral revascularization, translational research, artificial intelligence, and patient education.

The 51st MEMA edition positions itself as a real-word, problem-oriented source of practical information, grounded in the current best evidence and enriched by the content-expertise of leading clinicians in various topics. We are confident that the diverse, interactive, and engaging program will attract a broad audience of cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular specialists from Lebanon and the broader region. The targeted audience is inclusive of all health providers including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, scientists, and other healthcare professionals. Our attendees, hailing from Lebanon and the broader region, are eager to attend plenary lectures and actively engage in workshops prepared and led by medical experts from North America, Europe, and the Arab world.

We look forward to seeing you all at MEMA 2024!!
