At the Heart of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention

Date: 05-09-2023About the Event:

According to the CDC, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. The aging population, increase in obesity and cardiometabolic disease, ongoing health disparities and the suboptimal control of risk factors will likely exacerbate the incidence of cardiovascular disease in future years.

This cardiovascular disease prevention conference will educate physicians, advanced care providers and the broader healthcare team on current guidelines and opinion on weight loss & obesity prevention, calcium scoring, the social determinants of health and lipid medications. Join us in-person or virtually and earn education credits!

The Ins and Outs of a Healthy Heart: A Heart Valve Disease Awareness Day Event

Date: 02-18-2023About the Event:

This event has filled, but join our email community for notification of the recording of this event on February 22nd!

Join us in raising awareness for Heart Valve Disease (HVD). As many as 11.6 million Americans are estimated to have heart valve disease, and each year around 25,000 people die from this disease. Fortunately, HVD can usually be successfully treated in patients of all ages.

But successful treatment depends on understanding risk factors, recognizing symptoms, and getting timely treatment. Unfortunately, three out of four Americans report knowing little to nothing about the disease. It's crucial that you recognize specific risks and symptoms!

Complex Cardiovascular Imaging: Education for Technologists, Technicians and Nurses

Date: 10-15-2022About the Event:

Imaging for individuals with cardiovascular disease has continued to advance and grow in complexity. The field of cardiovascular imaging with cardiac CT angiography, cardiac MR, nuclear cardiology/PET and echocardiography has evolved into giving health care providers less invasive testing options to diagnose patients with cardiovascular disease. Multi-modality educational opportunities are limited in this rapidly changing field due to the small numbers of trained cardiac imaging technologists and support staff. 

Educational content will focus on ordering the correct imaging for each patient especially in the areas of structural heart disease, heart failure, coronary flow and more. Participants will learn from industry-leading cardiovascular imaging physicians, clinicians and technologists who will present the most current principles, techniques, risks and limitations of different cardiovascular imaging modalities. 

Location: This is a virtual event facilitated through Zoom webinar
