We would like to invite you to the Inaugural Heart Health Conference: A South Asian Perspective to be held at the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary, Alberta on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm.
The South Asian Canadians are at 3-5 times higher risk of developing heart disease than any other population. We are very pleased to have a number of incredible speakers this year, bringing their expertise from across Canada. They have been working in the field of cardiovascular health and having them share their experiences with us is much appreciated.
The content of the program is targeted for general practitioners, specialists, medical students/residents, nurse practitioners, nurses and allied health professionals who participate in the care of diabetic and cardiac patients, particularly of South Asian ethnicity.
The objectives of “Heart Health: A South Asian Perspective” CME are to:
1. Recognize, evaluate, and treat patients with and at risk of coronary artery disease
2. Examine the increasing problem of heart disease and diabetes in the South Asian population
3. Identify ways to risk stratify and treat patients with heart disease
4. Describe how socioeconomic barriers and epigenetics play a role in the development of heart disease
5. Apply evidence-based treatment strategies to treat complex patients with heart disease, including those with multiple co-morbid conditions, increase participants’ knowledge of recent developments in the treatment and management of difficult cases, and implementation of newly gained knowledge into clinical practice.
We are honored to bring this unique learning opportunity to Calgary, and welcome your participation.
