Lotan as International Friend

The Board of the Chinese Society of Cardiology (CSC) has just elected Professor Chaim Lotan, Director of Hadassah Medical Organization’s Heart Institute, to its panel of International Exchanges and Friends in the Field of Cardiology, together with 11 of the leading cardiologists in the world. Professor Lotan is the first Israeli ever awarded this honor. 

“Israeli medicine is held in great esteem in China,” Professor Lotan commented, “and I am proud to have been chosen as part of such an august group of international cardiologists as the International Friends of the Chinese Society of Cardiology.”  

An affiliate of the European Society of Cardiology, the CSC was founded in Taiyuan 40 years ago and has become the most recognized cardiovascular association in China, with branches throughout the country. The CSC strives to advance scientific and medical issues in cardiovascular medicine in China and seeks to advance medical and scientific technologies. CSC members lead numerous research projects that have attracted much international attention, notably in the areas of hypertension and acute myocardial infarction.

Professor Lotan’s appointment was offered in recognition of significant contributions to the development of cardiovascular medicine in China and, in particular, for advancing cooperation between Israeli forums and start-up ventures and Chinese biomedical and venture capital companies and medical conference organizers.
