Here’s a shoutout to my friend and colleague, Dr. Larry Sperling.
The renowned Emory Heart Center of the Emory University School of Medicine will be holding its 13th annual Emory Symposium on Coronary Atherosclerosis Prevention & Education June 4-8, 2014. This year’s event, which is titled “Emory Escape 2014“, will be held at the OMNI Amelia Plantation on lovely Amelia Island, Florida..
Cardiovascular disease remains the number one cause of death of men and women in the United States, and is a major cause of disability. The American Heart Association has a stated goal to reduce deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20% by 2020. In order to achieve this goal, 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 the recently released, 2013 ACC/AHA guidelines on hypertension, blood cholesterol, obesity, healthy living and risk assessment. In addition, there will be one day dedicated to lectures on CV prevention in “special population” patients, including patients with HIV, PCOS, breast cancer, connective tissue disease and post renal transplant. There will also be lectures on electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, heart failure, tobacco cessation, and women’s heart health. This conference will close the knowledge gaps between national guideline goals, practice, and research. Physicians and clinicians will have the opportunity to discuss with the speakers and other attendees how these principles can be applied to patient care in the context of their own practice in order to decrease cardiovascular disease risk.
In addition to the extensive educational curriculum, events will include pre-meeting workshops, an attendee and spouse session and a family social and cookout.
Who should attend
Cardiologists, internists, family practitioners, emergency medical personnel, primary care physicians and nurses can all benefit from this conference.
