PCR and CRF Announce Partners in Learning Virtual Sessions
Sessions will Air During PCR e-Course and TVT Connect
NEW YORK – May 28, 2020 – PCR and CRF are pleased to announce the creation of virtual Partners in Learning sessions that will be broadcast during the PCR e-Course (June 25-27, 2020) and CRF’s TVT Connect meeting (June 18-28, 2020). The sessions, which will cover coronary artery disease in TAVI patients and TAVI in low risk patients, are part of a collaborative educational series from the two groups.
“This is a natural extension of an educational partnership with CRF we launched earlier this year,” said William Wijns, MD, PhD, Co-Director of EuroPCR, Co-Director of AfricaPCR, and Chairman of PCR. “Our common goal is to teach and empower the global cardiovascular community to use the latest techniques and treatments to improve patient care. Enhanced collaboration and selfless partnership are more important than ever as we address the current crisis and its future consequences.”
“We’re honored to partner with PCR to deliver practical education in a new and exciting virtual format,” said Juan F. Granada, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation. “We look forward to seeing the tremendous impact this partnership will have on patient care around the world.”
The sessions will be broadcast during the following dates and times:
