The latest findings and developments in the field of cardiovascular medicine will be on display beginning today at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.

The Institute of Cardiovascular Science’s Winnipeg Heart International Conference will take place until Sunday, and the public is invited to attend.

The conference coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, a joint institute of St. Boniface Hospital and the University of Manitoba.

Two forums are open to the public, including “Hormones and the Heart: Promises, Problems and Unresolved Issues” on Friday at 9 a.m., and “Heart Failure: Management and Risk Prevention” on Saturday at 8:30 a.m.

The conference will also host 90 symposium talks by individuals who have trained with or who have mentored faculty of the Institute, and who have made outstanding contributions to the field of cardiovascular medicine. Approximately 250 delegates will take part, with 400 expected for a Gala Awards Dinner on Saturday.
