Statement of Need A key strategy for addressing heart disease and stroke is to educate the public and healthcare practitioners about the importance of prevention. When healthcare providers perform consistent risk factor assessments, more patients can be properly diagnosed and medically managed to prevent cardiovascular disease. Both primary and secondary prevention, as well as new developments in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cardiovascular disease, need to be addressed.
New this year Complementing CVD Prevention Symposium is the MCVI Cardiovascular Summit featuring comprehensive updates on the latest advances in cardiovascular medicine. Experts will concentrate on valvular, cardiothoracic surgery, electrophysiology, vascular and endovascular surgery and management of heart failure.
