The American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2016 is bringing big science, big technology, and big networking opportunities to New Orleans, Louisiana this November.
This event features five days of the best in science and cardiovascular clinical practice covering all aspects of basic, clinical, population and translational content. The scope and quality of the scientific exchange make Scientific Sessions the premier cardiovascular research and instructional meeting in the world.
Why Attend Scientific Sessions?
Scientific Sessions attracts nearly 18,000 professional attendees, with a global presence from more than 100 countries. In addition, 2 million medical professionals participate virtually in lectures and discussions about basic, translational, clinical and population science.
Exciting changes have been made to the Scientific Sessions’ structure, and new topics have been added to increase the educational offerings available to attendees. Educational sessions this year are organized in 26 programming tracks which are designed to help you find your community within the event. New programming tracks include Workplace Health, Health Tech, and Clinical Trialists.
Scientific Sessions will also feature the Simulation Zone, hands-on simulation activities, in addition to our very well-received Case Theaters, which offer 45-minute live presentations of recorded cases, accompanied by panel discussion. Other highlights include joint sessions with professional societies from around the world, MOC sessions, Professor Rounds of posters, and much more!
