2020 Annual THI Perfusion Conference to honor Terry Crane
The Annual THI Perfusion Conference will be held June 5-6, 2020 at Texas Heart Institute. The agenda for this year’s conference will include case reviews and discussion about the latest trends in the industry. Conference participants will earn CAT I Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) from the American Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion (ABCP). Funds raised at this year’s conference will provide critical programmatic support for the School of Perfusion as they continue to train the next generation of perfusionists.
The 2020 meeting will honor Terry Crane who was involved with the perfusion school for more than four decades and worked closely with Texas Heart Institute’s founder, Denton A. Cooley, M.D. His contributions to the success of the program are countless, and the perfusion school is presently thriving. Since its opening in 1971, more than 900 students have graduated from the program. Many of those graduates were touched by Terry’s passion for the vital role perfusionists play in operating the heart-lung machine and other ancillary devices to support patients who require cardiac surgery.
