AHA is proud to introduce a new program to further science collaboration hosted by Dr. Elliot Antman: The AHA Emerging Science™ Series webinars are one hour professional quality webinars held three times per year. Dr. Antman will host each webinar, which will have two 30 minute blocks, consisting of presentations of original research from the following categories:
- Late Breaking Clinical Trials
- Clinical Trial Updates of previously presented LBCTs
- Late Breaking Basic Science
- Major Bench-to-Bedside Advances
- Major Conference Proceedings
- Major Guidelines/Policy Statements
The live webinar events will be viewable from a computer or mobile phone, both live and on-demand. Attendees can ask questions electronically during the live event or post event.

I have attended the International Stroke Conference (ISC) every year since my third year of residency in 2013. It is by far the most educational and most fun conference for me as a stroke neurologist. This is the premiere conference for stroke and most of the groundbreaking trials are presented here. I remember the ISC 2015 in Nashville where several of ... more...on 03/29/2017 10:40 AM
Ten years ago, I made a decision that had a profound and lasting impact on my career. I decided to take time off, in the midst of grad school, and learn introductory computer programming. This was already several years after the initial draft sequence of the human genome had been released, and big data was starting to permeate virtually every research ... more...on 03/16/2017 03:41 PM
Strokes continue to be the leading cause of long term disability. One of the primary reasons for this is a short time window acutely where patients are eligible for IV thrombolysis. Endovascular intervention increases the time window. Large proportions of patients with stroke do not make it to the hospital within this treatment window. When ... more...on 02/01/2017 02:52 PM
As a Cardiologist in-training—and concerned physician, in general—I think it’s a good idea to stop every once in a while, to consider some of the ways we might engage our communities through our careers. After all, the walls of a hospital or clinic certainly aren’t the bounds of the care we provide. In many regards, our mission only starts there! Being ... more...on 01/26/2017 03:22 PM
Cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) have undergone tremendous changes over the years. Since the days of Hyman, they have undergone transformation from backups in emergencies to dependable workmen. In keeping with the same transformation, an entirely new treatment modality (cardiac resynchronization devices) emerged. Expected ... more...on 01/24/2017 03:31 PM
