The Czech Society of Cardiology (CKS) was awarded the Dr Lee Long-wook Memorial Prize by the World Health Organisation this month for its contribution to treating acute heart failure. Back in January, Czech Health Minister Martin Holcát addressed WHO in a letter stressing that research by Czech cardiologists had allowed thousands of acute heart attack sufferers worldwide to benefit from advanced treatment methods. Members of the Society of Cardiology, including its chairman, Miloš Táborský, met in the Czech capital on Friday. The WHO presented the annual prize a week ago to CKS secretary Jaromír Hradec. The CKS, established in 1929, is the second oldest cardiology society in Europe and the third oldest in the world.
