HBS 2018: HEART AND BRAIN SYMPOSIUM 2018
Hyatt Regency McCormick Place *Chicago, USA Visit the Venue to read more
It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend The Heart and Brain Symposium 2018. This high-impact meeting will take place June 28-30, 2018 in the vibrant city of Chicago, USA.
The Symposium facilitates an active and highly cooperative style of communication and interaction between prominent cardiologists and neurologists, thus creating favourable conditions for discussion towards a more integrated approach to our patient care.
Emerging and interesting data is still being accumulated regarding the relationship between the heart and the brain, and vice versa. New therapies continue to be developed, and this symposium will trigger an exchange of innovative ideas, considerable expertise and interdisciplinary working techniques which will help the participants benefit from one another's experience. This is our main goal, and the scientific program is designed to facilitate this exchange of knowledge.
We would like to encourage participants to contribute to the scientific program by submitting abstracts for poster presentation, and we look forward to your support and active involvement.
Join us at the Heart and Brain Symposium in the windy city of Chicago, where the winds of change will help us create more interrelated and integral vision of medicine and human health.
Hoping to see you all in Chicago,
