British heart specialists have returned home to an uncertain Brexit future after joining their Israeli peers for two days at the eighth annual Anglo-Israel Cardiovascular Symposium at the Dead Sea.
Clinicians discussed such topics as the genetics of cardiovascular death, state-of-the-art imaging techniques and how to manage big data and artificial intelligence.
Previous symposia have been held overlooking Lake Tiberias and at the Israel Heart Society in Tel Aviv, and is valued by both sets of clinicians for its networking value as well as to share learning and best practice.
Trustees of the Symposium include British consultant clinical oncologist Dr David Landau and consultant cardiologists Dr Duncan Dymond and 85-year old Dr Romeo Vecht, who moved to Israel 13 years ago.
The event was supported by pharmaceutical companies as well as by the charitable foundations of two Jewish families – Dangoor Education and Rosetrees Trust, the latter having been set up by Nat and Teresa Rosenbaum.
