South Asians (Indians, Bangladeshis, Pakistanis and Sri Lankans) have very high incidence of cardiometabolic diseases, such as hypertension, central abdominal obesity, metabolic syndrome, type-2 diabetes, ischemic heart disease and stroke. To create awareness, develop educational and a prevention program, a professional society was started at the University of Minnesota in 1993. This society (South Asian Society on Atherosclerosis Thrombosis) organized international conferences in India every other year, on the topic of "Atherosclerosis and Thrombosis" and published several monographs on this subject. During the same period, another sister society, Indian Society of Atherosclerosis Research (ISAR) was started in India, which organized conferences on topics related to basic research and clinical aspects of atherosclerosis. Together, these professional societies have contributed significantly to our understanding of chronic cardiometabolic diseases. SASAT is currently located at the Division of Clinical and Preventive Cardiology, Medanta, The MediCity, New Delhi, India and is affiliated with the professional journal; Journal of Clinical and Preventive Cardiology. For information on ISAR, readers are urged to visit their web site: www. isar.co.in.
