Why use AMICOR.blogspot as Pre-Confernece 6th ICPC

Dear Friends of the Heart,
Until now we didn't have the expected participation in our proposal, but I am sure we have at hands a great instrument, it depends on our will to make it productive.
In the Time Magazine today issue (June 13) you may read an article on the blogs potentialities:

Meet Joe Blog
Why are more and more people getting their news from amateur websites called blogs? Because they're fast, funny and totally biased
A few years ago, Mathew Gross, 32, was a free-lance writer living in tiny Moab, Utah. Rob Malda, 28, was an underperforming undergraduate at a small Christian college in Michigan. Denis Dutton, 60, was a professor of philosophy in faraway Christchurch, New Zealand. Today they are some of the most influential media personalities in the world. You can be one too.

I hope you will progressively react, when you discover what is possible to do with communication and networking.

The Milan Declaration

The Milan Declaration (Draft for the 5th IHHC)
The 5th International Heart Health Conference, which is taking place June 13-16, 2004 in Milan, Italy, will culminate in the creation of the Milan Declaration 2004. This key document will guide global efforts to prevention cardiovascular disease over the coming years. Through ProCOR, the Declaration’s authors are making a draft of the Declaration available for global review and comment prior to its finalization.

There is time enough to participate, with your comment and suggestion.
This is also a good opportunity to start thinking in our 6th ICPC that should be another step in continuation to these efforts aiming the health promotion and prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Please, you may use a form that is available in the ProCOR address, or use this blog for matters related with the next year meeting.

Global Burden of Chronic Diseases

Dear friends,
In the last AMICOR message [2079] I sent hyperlinks to the last issue of JAMA with rich material on the Global Burden of Chronic Diseases, with emphasis to the Developing Countries.
This is an important issue desserving serious discussion. I suggest to pick up one of your interest and bring topics to discussion, what may be an opportunity to feed speakers invited for the 6th ICPC, at less than one year of the formal opening.
You may post comments below, or new messages directly clicking in the spot or sending me a message
We will be waiting for your reaction.
