It was a great opportunity to be a part of the greatest conference of the world regarding Interventional Cardiology, especially as a faculty member. I had a chance to receive the most up-to-date data on recently running studies regarding a very wide spectrum of interventional cardiology. – Balint Kittka, MD

 

While in the U.S., Dr Kittka aslo attended the 48th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Hungarian Medical Association of America. The Meeting’s program covered a broad range of medical and surgical topics for a mulidisciplinary audience: primary care physicians, specialists and basic medical scientists who seek to improve their understanding of the scientific basis of clinical medicine and its applications to patient care. The conference was a superb opportunity to meet fellow Hungarians involved in medical sciences in the United States in a great atmosphere.

Without the help of the Hungary Initiatives Foundation I would not have been able to participate in this congress. Thank you for your great support in my professional improvement. – Balint Kittka, MD
