The National Forum Annual Meeting "is important because this is a group of thought leaders; people around the country who are really engaged in trying to prevent heart attack and stroke through their various organizations’ activities. And these are the key people who can activate and go back to where they work and practice, and make real progress and advances."
-Jennifer G. Robinson, MD, MPH, FAHA
