The 14th Annual Meeting was the connecting point for public, private and socialsectors to join forces to prevent cardiovascular disease.
The theme this year, Building Clinical & Population Health fostered a cross-sector approach. Heart disease and stroke are not just medical problems. They are community problems that require community, as well as medical, solutions.
Speakers and participants focused on developing and strengthening a culture of health and shared examples of programs and systems that have built and traveled across bridges from clinical and community sectors.
We gratefully recognize the members of the Planning Committee for all of their focus and hard work, as well as AstraZeneca, Novartis, Boston Scientific and the American Heart Association for their generous support as sponsors of the 14 th annual meeting.
