AHA Scientific Sessions 2010

The AHA 2010 Scientific Sessions are structured around “seven cardiovascular cores that reflect the evolution of scientific investigation and practice; include and integrate basic, clinical, population and translational science.”

This year’s meeting is intended to:

  • Present recent advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease and stroke for physicians, scientists (basic, clinical population and translational), nurses and healthcare professionals.
  • Present new clinical research advances through the Late-Breaking Clinical Trials sessions.
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of new research by scientists/investigators working in cardiovascular disease and stroke.
  • Provide an opportunity, in various forums including small groups, for attendees to interact with experts in question-and-answer sessions related to daily practice and public health issues.
  • Provide, through the Cardiovascular Seminars, How-To Sessions, Daytime Seminars and Sunday Morning Programs, a review of current patterns in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
  • Provide attendees, through the Plenary Sessions, an opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art cardiovascular research and how it applies to clinical practice.
