Clinical Program

Updated:Nov 3,2014

A vigorous exchange among researchers and clinicians helps accelerate breakthroughs, streamline the path from science to practice, and improve access to quality healthcare regardless of where patients happen to live. The American Heart Association facilitates that process through a variety of vehicles.

Current Clinical Programs

With participants from dozens of nations, American Heart Association and American Stroke Association conferences have become our most powerful incubators for global collaboration. Our Scientific Sessions and International Stroke Conference, known for debuting groundbreaking findings in heart and stroke research, attract tens of thousands of the world’s leading scientists and clinicians each year. Because many would-be participants can’t come to our meetings, we work to take our meetings to them by reprising key presentations in venues outside the U.S. as well as by offering key portions of the content on our Web sites and in e-mail newsletters.
