Program Overview and Objectives

Heart disease is a global health problem with no geographic, gender, or socio-economic boundaries. Despite the tremendous advances in cardiac care have been made recently, including drugs, devices, and diagnostic innovation, many patients continue to die from heart disease or live with significant morbidity. This conference brings together the most exciting advances in cardiovascular disease and related cardiometabolic medicine, from treatment to prevention, and innovation to application. The program is unique because of its translational theme. The global faculty and participating audience represent the faces of cardiovascular medicine with a truly international perspective.
