Baptist Heart invites you to join us for the 2023 Cardiovascular Update at Sheraton Flowood, The Refuge Hotel & Conference Center in Flowood, MS on August 25 and 26, 2023. The purpose of this event is to provide an educational forum to update internal medicine physicians, primary care physicians, family medicine physicians, emergency department physicians and nurse practitioners on the latest guidelines, technology and procedures regarding diagnosis and treatment of a variety of cardiovascular disease topics.  Our goal for this educational conference is to work with area physicians and health care providers to enhance the quality of care for heart disease patients and reduce the rate of heart disease in Mississippi.
