Ted Rogers Centre at CCC 2018

As the annual Canadian Cardiovascular Congress returns to Toronto, the Ted Rogers Centre has organized workshops and a symposium to explore pressing topics in the modern care of patients with heart disease.

For those attending, don’t miss two great sessions on Monday, Oct. 22. Dr. Heather Ross and Cedric Manlhiot, who are leading the Ted Rogers Centre’s pioneering advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence at Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, are hosting a morning workshop that will illustrate just what health-care practitioners need to know about this emerging field of care.

Monday afternoon, the Ted Rogers Centre will host an accredited symposium on the management of type 2 diabetes in patients with heart failure. This session combines leading experts in the fields of cardiology, endocrinology and nephrology to examine the many layers of caring for these patients.

On Tuesday, Oct 23, anyone who wants to know more about incorporating genetic testing in routine cardiovascular care shouldn’t miss our workshop led by Ted Rogers Centre executive director Dr. Mansoor Husain, scientific lead Dr. Seema Mital, and genetic counsellor Eriskay Liston (among others).

Here is a broader glimpse of how Ted Rogers Centre members will contribute their expertise to sessions spread across #CCCTO.
