SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10th – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11th

Program Overview

Cardiovascular disease continues to dominate our society and remains the number #1 killer worldwide in both men and women. Approximately one-third of total deaths globally are a result of the various forms of cardiovascular disease. A cardiovascular disease-related event causes a death every minute in the United States; therefore, the field of Cardiovascular Disease in terms of diagnosis and treatment continues to evolve with the final goal of improving the overall care and prognosis of patients suffering from a variety of cardiovascular diseases.

The Top Ten Topics in Clinical Cardiology is poised to help healthcare professionals stay current on new and emerging approaches in the diagnosis, management and treatment of heart disease, including COVID-19. A robust agenda combines individual and collective opinions from field expert clinicians and scholars. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken the center stage in various cardiovascular and respiratory disease processes.
