As you probably know, we’ve set the dates and location for this year’s Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.® Atrial Fibrillation Conference: August 9–11 at the Fairmont Dallas.
At StopAfib.org, we’re working hard to finalize the faculty and agenda for this year’s conference. So far, we’ve confirmed Dr. Prystowsky, who has long been an ally of our organization and an advocate for patients. He’s passionate about getting patients a seat at the table so they can share their insights with doctors regarding the treatment process.
As the Director of the Clinical Electrophysiology Laboratory at St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital and the Discussant for the recent CABANA Study (which he talks about in the third set of master class videos, here), he’s at the forefront of the afib field.
A quick note about Dr. Prystowsky’s role as Discussant for the CABANA Study: The Discussant for any study is the expert chosen to review the brand-new data and present the implications of it at a medical conference. The fact that the Heart Rhythm Society (the medical society for electrophysiologists) chose Dr. Prystowsky as the Discussant for the CABANA Study means he’s one of the foremost experts in the world on the topic of afib.
Plus, every year he has spoken at the Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.® Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference, Dr. Prystowsky has spent a significant amount of time sitting with attendees and answering their questions.
For these reasons, we consider his presence at the conference invaluable and are grateful that he takes the time to do this for us, the patients.
We’re working hard on the agenda and faculty and will announce more details soon.
For now, though, mark the dates on your calendar so you can begin making plans to travel to Dallas this August.
