Continuing Education

Manesh R. Patel, MD and Amit Khera, MD are photographed bumping fists. Mark your calendar

Mark your calendars now to experience the premiere global event focusing on improving health by championing scientific discovery and practice-changing educational content.

Begin your #AHA22 experience by submitting an abstract April 13 – June 9, 6:00 PM CST. We can’t wait to see you this November!


Even though #AHA21 was fully virtual, our flagship meeting brought us together across the globe. If you missed some of our great programming, now is your chance!

Members and attendees can now access informative, practice-changing sessions or earn CE credits for free -- through a different link. And nonmembers can purchase our Sessions package or our special CE bundle.

The GPM Council seeks to advance discovery and translation of biological insights from genetics and omics technologies to improve cardiovascular and brain health through better risk prediction, treatment and prevention for patients. Our expertise spans genetics, genomics, genomic medicine, epigenetics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, proteomics, microbiome, bioinformatics, computational science, and population health.


Since 1999, the BCVS Council has advanced understanding of mechanisms of basic cardiovascular regulation to support insights into cardiovascular disease and facilitate new therapies. Emphasis is on integrating molecular/cellular and physiological approaches to address problems relating to genomics, cell signaling, myocardial biology, circulatory physiology, pathophysiology, and peripheral vascular disease.


The ATVB Council focuses on arteriosclerosis, thrombosis and vascular biology. The council advances research, addresses prevention, improves diagnosis and treatment, and works actively with other organizations. It shares reliable information through its annual conference, awards and lectures, and in the AHA’s journal, Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology.
