Cardiovascular Disease Management:
A Case-Based Approach
October 5 & 6, 2017
Arizona Biltmore Hotel, Phoenix, Arizona
Program Director: Richard R. Heuser, MD, FACC
Chief of Cardiology
St. Luke’s Medical Center
This two-day continuing medical education symposium is centered on everyday care for patients with cardiovascular diseases. Cutting-edge technologies and advances in the treatment of cardiovascular disease from the medical, interventional, and lifestyle modification perspectives will be presented. Unlike most programs, this will be delivered as a case-based approach focusing on gauging and monitoring therapy, including recognizing symptoms, evaluating risk factors, guiding treatment through imaging, general and functional testing, and appropriate therapy.
Using data from the most recent evidence-based medicine studies, as well as new guidelines, the invited faculty will lead detailed discussions on statins, PCSK9 inhibitors, heart failure, PFO closure, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, wound care, TAVR, atrial fibrillation and more. The ultimate goal of the 2017 Cardiovascular Disease Management Symposium is to provide an overview of the optimal methods and management of the informed physician’s practice, and to discuss and debate the exciting options on the horizon.
Clinical cardiologists, primary care physicians, interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, basic scientists, vascular medicine specialists, nurses, perfusionists, cath lab technicians, and other health care professionals with a special interest in the field of cardiovascular medicine are invited to attend the 5th Annual Symposium. Advanced registration is available online or by calling the reservations department at (800) 950-0086.
Additional IASIS Healthcare invited faculty include panelist Timothy Kieborz, DO from St. Luke’s Medical Center Wound Care Center and speaker Patricia E. Thorpe, MD, FSIR, Endovascular Surgeon at St Luke’s Medical Center.
