News – AGM
It is my honour to take over the reins of a society which has such an important role to play in the ever changing cardiovascular health care environment.
I would like to thank SASCI members for attending the AGM during AfricaPCR and for their contribution to the election of a new executive committee and office bearers. A society is only as strong as its members and is highly reliant on willing contributors to get involved in order to give guidance to the broader cardiology environment that we operate in.Read more
