Attendee Resources

Fred M. Kusumoto, MD, FHRS

I hope will join me at #HRS2020 as Scientific Sessions returns to San Diego for the first time since 2002. I couldn’t be more excited about the program will we be delivering. This year, we received 3,000+ submissions in 40+ categories from 50+ countries. On behalf of the Program Committee and the 700 distinguished faculty members, I invite you to join 6,000+ attendees from around the world to carry on the legacy of scientific breakthroughs to improve the lives of patients with heart rhythm disorders.

#HRS2020 will offer clarity of vision and an opportunity to focus on what matters most. To that point, this year’s Opening Plenary - Our Future In Focus will be something to behold, as three powerful minds share their visions and predictions for digital health, consumer technology, and the future of EP. So that you may focus on what’s important to you, Heart Rhythm On Demand will capture all meeting education for you to consume after the event, at your convenience on HRS365, allowing you to enjoy time networking with colleagues and reconnecting with friends.

In fact, that’s what I cherish most about Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions – the annual opportunity to spend time with mentors, visiting with old friends, and meeting new people that will inspire me to dream bigger. I look forward to seeing you in San Diego – one of my favorite cities in the world.
