New York Cardiovascular Symposium: Major Topics in Cardiology Today

Endorsed by: The New York Cardiological Society of the New York State Chapter, American College of Cardiology

COURSE OVERVIEW
Fifty years ago, a group of cardiovascular experts gathered in New York under the direction of Dr. Henry Russek to discuss optimal strategies to treat patients with cardiovascular disease. After meeting annually for thirty years, Dr. Russek selected world-renowned cardiologist, Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, MACC, to continue the educational goal of the meeting with cardiovascular peers and colleagues. For over twenty years, Dr. Fuster has brought together the masters of cardiology at the New York Cardiovascular Symposium. Now over 2,000 cardiovascular specialists come together for thought-provoking topics offered by expert presenters who provide the latest scientific updates, new technology, approaches and guidelines required to improve patient care. Join fellow cardiovascular clinicians at ACC’s premier course, set in the excitement of New York City during the holiday season featuring holiday lights, Broadway shows, shopping and festivities galore! Mark your 2017 calendar to experience firsthand why colleagues from around the globe have met at the New York Cardiovascular Symposium for five decades.

ACC does not and will not solicit attendees to book a hotel room for this program.  ACC has been made aware of a credit card scam taking place where people will be called about booking a hotel room for the meeting and will be emailed a form asking for credit card information. These third-party firms are scams. They undercut ACC’s ability to fill our contracted room block and they use false and deceptive activities which may end up costing attendees in money and trouble. We urge you not to use them for your own protection. Please book with Hilton using the above link or call them directly to book your room. The solicitation calls are in no way associated with ACC or the New York Cardiovascular Symposium.
