Arterial Stiffness: If You Don’t Measure It, You Can’t Manage It

The North American Artery Society is pleased to announce that its 4th Annual Meeting will take place on Friday and Saturday, September 5 & 6, 2014 at the recently renovated Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago, IL in Chicago, IL.

This Fourth Annual Meeting will feature plenary lectures as well as clinical/translational lectures focusing on biological targets in arterial stiffness, target organs, risk assessment and management, exercise, and racial disparities. A debate, abstract presentations, exhibits, and exhibitor presentations round out the concentrated day and a half of presentations all aimed at providing the latest science and translational information regarding arterial hemodynamics. We have many recognized experts who will attend and present, and here are some of the highlights:

  • Dr. Gary Mitchell will give the opening Plenary Lecture on "Why Should We Measure Arterial Stiffness?"
  • Professor Patrick Segers from Ghent, Belgium, will present the Diamond Dinner Lecture on Future of Arterial Stiffness Measurement
  • Professor John Cockcroft from Cardiff, Wales will face-off with Donald Lloyd-Jones from Chicago, IL in a debate over the role of arterial stiffness in cardiovascular risk assessment
  • Several talks will deal with the role of de-stiffening interventions like exercise, aldosterone antagonism and nitrate therapies
  • There will be a presentation devoted to the American Heart Association Summary Statement on Arterial Stiffness
  • Both oral and poster abstract presentations on new and exciting science.
  • And an Exhibits Hall, with sponsor presentations to boot!
Please peruse the Registration Brochure for complete titles and faculty of the major presentations at this year’s meeting as well as registration and hotel information. This promises to be a dynamic, action-charged meeting with excellent opportunities to network and socialize.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago for this dynamic, action-packed meeting with excellent opportunities to network and socialize at a convenient location next to the Chicago O’Hare Airport and only minutes away from downtown Chicago and the Magnificent Mile.
