Heart Summit will not take place in 2022.
Arkansas Heart Hospital is excited to celebrate the 21st year of our annual Heart Summit, the premier medical education event in the region. This year, we will host a one-day all virtual experience LIVE from Encore Medical Center. Arkansas Heart Hospital has an obligation to educate and celebrate the new techniques and technologies that are evolving in cardiology. Heart Summit seeks to fulfill the educational needs of healthcare practitioners who manage patients with heart disease and peripheral vascular disease.
Our goals are:
To address identified clinical challenges.
To update practitioners on the latest advances and best practices in cardiac care.
To assist practitioners in developing strategies to apply this knowledge to the diagnosis, treatment, and/or referral of patients with peripheral vascular disease.
From didactic sessions to reviews of live cases, Heart Summit promises to provide a state of the art experience for its participants. We hope you will join us as Arkansas’ leading healthcare experts present an agenda of timely topics, now more relevant than ever. Invited participants will be family practitioners, internists, cardiologists, and other physicians, nurses or other licensed healthcare professionals involved in the care and management of cardiovascular patients or with an interest in the latest advances in medicine.
