The New York Cardiological Society (NYCS) has a long history of developing programs to provide members of the cardiology community guidance and updates relevant to cardiovascular (CV) care. Important breakthroughs have redefined opportunities to change the outlook of the disease with a broad range of medical therapies, devices, and care strategies.

The purpose of the 15th Annual CVT Symposium is to update the cardiovascular team (CVT) with emerging studies and to provide practical guidance in heart failure therapies, structural heart therapies and health policies.
