Be a Catalyst in the Fight Against Stroke!

In 1924 when a few dedicated physicians and social workers set out to collectively focus attention and study on cardiovascular disease, the most common treatment for people with heart disease was often total confinement to bed rest. At the time, Paul Dudley White, one of six cardiologists who founded the American Heart Association said, “We were living in a time of almost unbelievable ignorance about heart disease.” Today the American Heart Association (AHA) is the oldest and largest association dedicated to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The AHA will continue to promote their fight on February 11-15 at the International Stroke Conference in downtown Nashville, TN. The International Stroke Conference, “Connecting the World to Stroke Science,” is the world’s largest meeting of medical professionals dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease.

The conference provides attendees the opportunity to network with more than 4,000 cerebrovascular experts representing over 60 countries; it offers outstanding programming that delivers more than 1,500 compelling presentations in 21 categories emphasizing basic, clinical and translational sciences as they evolve toward a more complete understanding of stroke pathophysiology with the goal to develop more effective prevention and treatment. The Conference will offer numerous informative sessions in clinical, basic science and other specialized topics.

Those who plan on attending can maximize their conference experience by participating in one of the three pre-conference symposia:

The State of the Science Stroke Nursing Symposium

Pre-Conference Symposium I: Stroke in the Real World – Working Man Blues: Challenges in Inpatient Stroke Care

Pre-Conference Symposium II (Students/Trainees/Early Career Professionals): Emerging Trends for Stroke Trials: Biomarkers, Adaptive Trial Design, Repair Trials, and New Endpoints

Registration is now open for this premier educational event dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease. The event will be held at the Music City Center in Downtown Nashville, TN on February 11 thru 15, 2015.
