Sharing Experience and Knowledge on Cerebrovascular Diseases

It is even a busier time than usual for medical professionals who are focused and dedicated to fighting cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The American Heart Association (AHA) will be sponsoring The International Stroke Conference, “Connecting the World to Stroke Science,” on February 11-15 at the Music City Center in Downtown Nashville. It is the world’s largest meeting of medical professionals dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease and will attract more than 4,000 cerebrovascular experts from around the world including neurological specialist from AcuteCare Telemedicine (ACT). The leading practice-based provider of telemedicine services for hospitals seeking around-the-clock stroke and other urgent neurological care will be an exhibitor at this premier AHA event.

On March 25, 2015 the Georgia Partnership for Telehealth will be conducting their 6th Annual Spring Conference in Savannah, GA. The conference is a great opportunity for Primary Care Providers, specialty physicians, advanced practice nurse practitioners, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses and medical facilities administrators to learn how the most up-to-date telecommunications technologies are impacting the delivery of stroke care and other healthcare services. Attendees will experience telemedicine in an applied framework, build network relationships and gain exposure to the latest in telehealth hardware and software technology. The conference will include a Grant Writing Workshop and will feature presentations from foremost experts in teleneurology.

Dr. Keith A. Sanders will be presenting a talk at the conference entitled “Outcome Analysis Demonstrates the Value of Telestroke”. Dr. Sanders is Director and Founder of the Stroke Center of St. Joseph’s Hospital of Atlanta and former Chairman of the Ethics Resource Committee and a partner in Atlanta Neurology, P.C. and AcuteCare Telemedicine (ACA). “As medical practitioners, it is incumbent upon us to not only apply the latest techniques and technologies to the treatment of our patients but to share our experiences and knowledge with the greater medical care community on how state-of-the-art telestroke technology is advancing cardiovascular care and saving lives,” says Dr. Sanders. “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to share my experiences on improving and expanding access to quality, advanced cardiovascular care to patients no matter where they live.”

The GPT Spring Conference will begin on March 25, 2015 and run through March 27, at the Hyatt Regency-Savannah at 2 West Bay Street, Savannah GA 31401. Online registration is now open. An array of exhibitor opportunities is now available. Additional information is available by contacting Samantha Haas at samantha.wainright@gatelehealth.org.
