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!

Join the American Heart Association in New Orleans, LA on November 12-16 and experience more than 5,000 sessions, with 1,000 invited faculty, and 4,000 abstract presentations; all from the world’s leaders in cardiovascular disease.
