Texas Heart Institute Shines at the Annual AHA Scientific Meeting

The American Heart Association Scientific Sessions were held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania November 16-18 to showcase the latest cutting-edge science and education for those in the fields of cardiovascular clinical, population, and basic science.

The annual meeting is among the premier cardiovascular research and instructional meetings in the world with over 1,000 invited speakers of the world’s top leaders in the areas of cardiovascular disease.

Several members of the Texas Heart Institute traveled to the meetings to present their research.
