Accordingly, C4- (Central China Cardiovascular Congress) was also born.
At present, C4 is a high-end academic conference in the cardiovascular disease field, which is the most comprehensive, professional, authoritative and the most extensive in areas. In 2020, C4 gathered experts from all over the world such as Germany, the United States, Beijing, Shanghai, Yunnan, and Shenzhen, etc. to create a super forum for the cardiovascular academic community.

Experts Giving Advice to Impel Technological Innovation
Over the years, C4 is truly the grandest meeting in the field of cardiovascular disease attracting many experts throughout the world. Since 2018, the focus has been increasing year by year, covering the Central Plains to the whole country and even the world.

Top Academic Platform Escorting People’s Health
As the top academic exchange platform in the industry, C4 is not only academic exchange, and its greater value lies in protecting the cardiovascular health of the people, building a fair, rigorous and high-end academic platform to achieve breakthroughs and sharing of key topics.
“China Cardiovascular Disease Report 2015” pointed out that cardiovascular disease deaths accounted for the top cause of death among urban and rural residents in our country. In cities, 4 out of every 10 deaths are due to cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease has become a major public health problem, and the number of patients with cardiovascular disease will continue to grow rapidly in the next 10 years.
As the co-sponsor of C4, Fuwai Central China Cardiovascular Hospital has been committed to the promotion of the healthy China strategy since its inception, with the goal of establishing a national regional medical center, which will protect people’s health and treat difficult and critical illnesses with the responsibility of escorting the cardiovascular health of the people.
With the in-depth development of the Healthy China strategy and the spring breeze of the new medical reform, driven by the strong academic atmosphere of C4 and the transformation of academic achievements, a national cardiovascular regional medical center based in Henan, serving Central Plains, and radiating Central China will continue to go forward for the first-class high-level modernized national new regional medical center. It will make new contributions to serve the healthy Central Plains strategy and promote Henan’s economic and social development.
