Cardiovascular Update 2019

Cardiovascular Update 2019

Baptist Heart invites you to join us for the 2019 Cardiovascular Update at The Belhaven in Jackson, MS, on Saturday, April 6, 2019. 

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 and stroke topics. With educational events such as this, we have had an impact on the statistics regarding heart disease in Mississippi by improving mortality and morbidity. In partnership with area physicians and healthcare providers, we can enhance both the quality of care and the quality of life of our patients who suffer from cardiovascular disease. 

The event will cost $40 for physicians and nurse practitioners.
