Conferences and Events

The CVC is dedicated to enhancing public health through the pursuit of knowledge translation and dissemination.  Our organization has the opportunity to do this through participating in and hosting a number of conferences and events each year. Below you will find key information and resources for a selection of past and upcoming events.

Beyond 2000

Beyond 2000 is a symposium held each year in conjunction with the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress. The event is comprised of two sequential sessions – the first aimed at the traditional target of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), and the second explores the increasingly common and important subjects of heart failure (HF) and atrial fibrillation (AFib). The 2018 program details can be found below:

More information about the symposium can be found on the Beyond 2000 Page
