This website is an archive of the first Ted Rogers Centre scientific symposium, and includes videos of most presentations.
For the 2017 event, we have teamed with the Canadian Heart Failure Society to host Heart Failure Update -- view agenda and register at https://www.hfupdate.ca.
Heart failure is a growing global epidemic and, in Canada alone, one million adults and children live with the disease. Each year, 50,000 new cases are identified. Heart failure takes up to a $3 billion annual toll on the Canadian economy, and is the most rapidly rising cardiovascular disease. The average survival rate is just two years. It doesn’t have to be this way. Here, the cardiovascular community came together to explore state-of-the-art knowledge about heart failure, cardiotoxicities, the best approaches to prevention, personalized care, how to reduce re-hospitalizations, and the fascinating roles of genetic testing and regenerative medicine. It featured an array of world-leading experts in many fields of medicine and science.
