Attend the Ischemic Heart Disease Learning Pathway at ACC.21 and find a selection of robust sessions that cross the width of acute coronary syndromes and the diagnosis and treatment of stable ischemic heart disease. The program features innovative and informative sessions led by expert speakers from diverse educational backgrounds and clinical experiences. Presenters will focus on a broad range of contemporary topics in ischemic heart disease, particularly high impact and rapidly changing areas.

Several sessions will address the important topics of racial/ethnic disparities, gender-specific care and the changing care environment in the era of COVID-19. Other sessions will focus on ischemic heart disease without obstructive CAD or a multidisciplinary and data-driven approach to care. Attendees will find that the sessions and the presenters themselves portray the reality of cardiovascular medicine today with presentations about the use of interactive and interdisciplinary approaches to provide patients with an optimum level of care.

All physician and non-physician providers on a cardiovascular care team will benefit from this powerful, creatively structured and informative program. Sessions include many cardiovascular and international experts as well as a variety of non-cardiovascular specialists and advanced practice providers. The program will challenge participants to rethink how they would respond in new scenarios and in daily clinical practice. General cardiologists, other clinicians and other members of the cardiovascular team will find valuable information and updates on ASCVD risk factors and key advances in lipid and diabetes management (session 755), as well as how to Diagnose and Treat INOCA (session 784).
