Arvilla Berger Lecture
Designed for general internists, cardiologists, cardiology fellows, internal medicine residents, community family practitioners, physician’s assistants, technologists, medical students, pharmacists, pharmacy students, nurses and nurse practitioners, the Annual Arvilla Berger Lecture is aligned with the University of Rochester’s Grand Rounds. Arvilla Berger was the wife of Captain Leo Berger, a Long Island businessman, who in 1974 endowed an annual lecture in gratitude for the services of their cardiologist, Dr. Harold Bernstein. The mission of the lecture is to bring outstanding cardiovascular scientists to New York to share their knowledge and experience with colleagues. It is presented by the New York Cardiological Society, the New York State Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and the New York Cardiac Center. This lecture is usually held in March.
Cardiovascular Team Symposium
The Annual Cardiovascular Team Symposium is presented by the New York Cardiological Society, the New York State Chapter of the American College of Cardiology, and the New York Cardiac Center and is a unique academic event designed to enhance current knowledge about the etiology, prevention, intervention and management of cardiovascular disease. Presentations provide cardiovascular team members with evidence-based approaches to the treatment and care of the cardiac patient and information regarding current and the latest cutting-edge technologies. The program is designed for nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, technologists, physicians and all members of the cardiovascular team. This event is usually held in June.
Annual Meeting & Scientific Session
The New York Cardiological Society’s Annual Scientific Session is also typically where the Chapter’s fall Council meeting is held. As cardiovascular medicine rapidly evolves, cardiovascular healthcare providers are challenged to determine and recommend the best therapies for their patients. This scientific session provides attendees with the opportunity to examine current topics in cardiovascular care with the goal of helping them provide the best care for patients. The target audience includes cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, internists, family practitioners, gerontologists, oncologists, cardiac nurse practitioners, physician assistants, cardiology fellows in training (FITs) and all member of the cardiovascular team (CVT). The event is presented by New York Cardiological Society, the New York State Chapter of the American College of Cardiology, and the New York Cardiac Center. This event is usually held in October.
New York Cardiac Center Lecture
The Annual New York Cardiac Center Lecture traditionally invites prominent presenters to cover a particular specialty area related to cardiovascular health. The New York Cardiac Center helps to sponsor research and development of treatment for those who need it and to assist in training scientists, educators and physicians in conjunction with the New York State Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and the New York Cardiological Society. It is through the support of the New York Cardiac Center that all of the above programs are made possible, due to its very generous contributions and commitment to the continued education of healthcare practitioners in New York.
