SASCI and SA Heart Visiting Professor Evening Lecture Series 2020

Prof Gregory Barsness was well received at the SASCI and SA Heart Western Cape Branch Meeting on 17 February with 80 delegates attending the first evening lecture of the series. The SASCI and SA Heart KZN Branch Evening Lecture on 12 March was a great success, with great interaction from the attending delegates.

After due consideration, SASCI & SA Heart Branches made the decision to cancel the SASCI Visiting Professor Evening Lectures in Pretoria, Bloemfontein and Johannesburg, due to the current COVID-19 virus pandemic.
