For the Heart of MN: A Cardiovascular Nursing Conference is a continuing education activity designed to educate nurses on the most current, leading-edge information in cardiovascular care.

Topics will include med therapy compliance, women’s heart health, pulmonary arterial hypertension basics, transferring critically ill patients, smoking cessation education, a structural heart update, referring to a vascular surgeon, end of life care in cardiology, and care for the caregiver.

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!
