Get on the Beat: Trends in Heart Care


Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in America and doctors face many challenges treating this and associated heart and vascular conditions. Renown is hosting a three-day conference to discuss the latest in cardiac care.

Doctors and healthcare providers across the region are gathering for the 30th annual Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine for Primary Care conference Nov. 8th – 10th at the Resort at Squaw Creek in Olympic Valley, California, hosted by Renown Institute for Heart & Vascular Health and the Nevada Academy of Family Physicians.

The three-day Trends in Cardiovascular Medicine conference educates primary care providers, nurses and all other physicians and healthcare personnel interested in the most recent advances and current established guidelines for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and diseases or problems associated with heart disease.

It is also a chance for medical providers to ask first-hand questions on a variety of trending topics ranging from optimizing blood pressure control to the recent advances in preventive cardiology and lifestyle medicine.

The conference objectives include:

  • Developing skills to become less frustrated and more fulfilled as a healthcare provider.
  • Obtaining a comprehensive understanding of the most effective methodologies and strategies to measure blood pressure.
  • Reviewing the guidelines and recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of venous thromboembolism.
