ESCAPE Speaker

Agenda

ASCVD has seen a significant reduction in the recent years. Yet, the disease is a major cause of disability and death both in the United States and globally. Physicians and clinicians must gain the knowledge, skill and resources to integrate the latest research and clinical guidelines in the context of their own practice. At ESCAPE, attendees will hear nationally renowned speakers discuss ACC/AHA guidelines on hypertension, blood cholesterol, women’s heart disease, electrophysiology, interventional cardiology and congestive heart failure.

Attire for the symposium is business casual and comfortable. Since meeting room temperatures and personal comfort levels vary, please bring a sweater or jacket to the educational sessions.
