What's new in 2021?

AHA is currently planning this meeting to be an in-person event AND a virtual event.

We know that many of you are fighting, both personally and professionally, on the front lines during these uncertain times. The AHA is committed to supporting your life-saving efforts with COVID-19 resources, research funding opportunities and disseminating the latest in translational and population science to prevent heart disease and stroke and foster cardiovascular health.

We also are looking towards the future to ensure that we continue to support your work when we return to a state of normalcy because the dissemination of science and new learnings must always continue. In the interim we want to stay connected to the people that we care about as well as news, information, and education.

The incentive to disseminate the latest cardiovascular and stroke science to colleagues around the world has never been greater. To address this abundant need the EPI/Lifestyle Scientific Sessions is reimagining the way science is shared! Now YOU can present from ANYWHERE. Connect... Engage...and Share!

  • Accepted abstracts can be presented virtually and/or in person in Chicago, Illinois.
  • Gain a greater overall reach for your science with a larger audience.
  • Grow your network and discuss your findings with the audience using live chat.

We have also added a new COVID-19 abstract category! Visit our programming page for more details to get started.

The conference is designed to benefit researchers as well as public health practitioners and clinicians.
