Cardiovascular disease remains the number one cause of death of men and women in the United States, and is a major cause of disability. The American Heart Association has a stated goal to reduce deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke by 20% by 2020. In order to achieve this goal, physicians and clinicians must gain the knowledge, skill and resources to integrate the latest research and clinical guidelines in the context of their own practice.
At ESCAPE attendees will hear nationally renowned speakers discuss four prevention focused areas relative to cardiologists and practicing physicians and clinicians: Controversies in Prevention, Hot Topics in CV Prevention, Practical Prevention, and Prevention Potpourri. There will also be lectures on electrophysiology, interventional cardiology, peripheral vascular disease and congestive heart failure.

Cardiologists, general internists, family practice providers, internal medicine subspecialists, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other primary healthcare providers.
