Dear Heart Rhythm Professional,
This year, the global electrophysiology community descends upon the Windy City! The finest clinicians, scientists, researchers, educators, and innovators in the field will gather for the Heart Rhythm Society’s 38th Annual Scientific Sessions, May 10-13 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
The week kicks off with the Opening Plenary, highlighted by an impassioned keynote address from Hugh Evans, Co-Founder and CEO of Global Citizen and the Global Poverty Project, who will energize your worldview and activate your global citizenship. A remarkable roster of intensive full-day Summits, included with Premier registration, follows and features the AF and VT/VF Summits, as well as the return of the popular Lead and Device Management Summit.
Heart Rhythm 2017 is the place to immerse in the latest science. More than 1,300 scientific abstracts form the bedrock of the Scientific Sessions. The Late-Breaking Clinical Trials, Special Sessions, Posters, Abstract Sessions, and Joint Sessions are a must for any attendee. Our traditional favorites will be updated to enhance the learning experience — the Basic Science Forum, Allied Professional Forum, Hands-On Educational Session, Meet the Experts, and Live Cases. I encourage you to access the online planner and mobile app to help you tailor your itinerary for this exciting week.
Walk the aisles of the Exhibit Hall to visit with exhibitors showcasing the latest in arrhythmia products and services. Social media sessions, mini-reunions with mentors, and networking opportunities will be featured in the EPicenter. Learn more about Heart Rhythm Society initiatives including Communities of Practice.
Please join us in Chicago for Heart Rhythm 2017 and be a part of this global community dedicated to heart rhythm disorders.
