Overview

Event Overview:

This three-day meeting is sponsored and organized by the AHA Councils on Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology and Peripheral Vascular Disease, and in collaboration with the AHA Council on Functional Genomics and Translational Biology and the Society for Vascular Surgery. The meeting includes diverse disciplines within the arteriosclerosis, thrombosis, vascular biology, vascular medicine, functional genomics, peripheral vascular disease and vascular surgery research communities that allow investigators to explore areas of cross-disciplinary interests.

Exhibitor Information:

It is our pleasure to invite you to the Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology / Peripheral Vascular Disease Scientific Sessions! The American Heart Association’s annual meeting offers a unique opportunity to showcase your company to your customers and prospects.

With an anticipated professional attendance of 1,200 you, as an exhibitor, have the opportunity to interact with colleagues from very diverse disciplines including:

    Cardiovascular Medicine

This year’s conference is sure to be a success and we would love to have you be a part it!

About AHA:

The American Heart Association is the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. Founded by six cardiologists in 1924, our organization now includes more than 22.5 million volunteers and supporters. We fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide critical tools and information to save and improve lives. Our nationwide organization includes 156 local offices and more than 3,000 employees. We moved our national headquarters from New York to Dallas in 1975 to be more centrally located. The American Stroke Association was created as a division in 1997 to bring together the organization’s stroke-related activities.
