By Eric D. Peterson, MD, MPH, FAHA, Committee on Scientific Sessions Program Chair
Welcome to Anaheim and day one of the 2017 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions. From late-breaking clinical results to hands-on interactive experiences, the Committee on Scientific Sessions Program has assembled a world-class educational program covering the spectrum of basic, clinical and population science.
We’ll begin with the Early Career Opening General Session at 9 a.m., then have Early Career Day that features a comprehensive program of specialty science and career development sessions for the up-and-coming generation of cardiac care clinicians and researchers (see schedule below). Each session will be led by experienced educators and mentors.
Reflecting a theme woven throughout Scientific Sessions, the Early Career Day schedule includes several sessions devoted to precision medicine and individualized patient care. At 1 p.m., we’ll have the first of the two-part session “Precision Medicine in Cardiovascular and Stroke Nursing.” Also at 1 p.m., two sessions will explore the use of big data to deliver precision medicine: “Cutting Edge Methods in Big Data and Beyond” and “Tackling Big Data: Network Systems Analysis for High-Throughput Data Interpretation.”
At 3:10 p.m., “Using AHA’s Precision Medicine Platform and the Type 2 Diabetes Knowledge Portal to Search and Analyze Data” will introduce early career scientists to the platform and provide a hands-on opportunity to see how it can enhance and expand research capabilities.
The annual Resuscitation Science Symposium also begins today. This three-day program brings together resuscitation clinicians and researchers from around the world to exchange ideas and learn about the most recent advances in resuscitation science.
Today’s ReSS highlights include presentations of the Lifetime Achievement Award in Cardiac Resuscitation Science, the Lifetime Achievement Award in Trauma Resuscitation Science and the Ian G. Jacobs Award for International Group Collaboration to Advance Resuscitation Science. All three will be presented at 9:30 a.m. in rooms 154-158, ACC North. The best oral abstract presentations and the Best Abstract Awards for Cardiac and Trauma Resuscitation Science will follow at 10:30 a.m.
This is just a sampling of what’s happening today — and a taste of what’s in store over the next five days. No matter your specialty, area of interest or career level, this year’s program has a lot to advance your scientific knowledge and improve your clinical practice.
