SWME proudly supported the World Heart Federation (WHF) webinar, 
Tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure: the orphans of CVD risk.

The webinar, held on March 24, 2014, included leading cardiologists working in the Middle East to engage and encourage the development of ongoing training via cardiology societies. This webinar seeks to strengthen the network of opinion leaders in the region who are invested in cessation treatment and long-term strategies. 

A recording of the webinar was created and is available below. This video incorporates video-tagging, allowing viewers to skip forward within the video by clicking on the relevant section in the navigation bar.
