Message from the Course Director

Welcome to CARDIA 2018! We are so excited you are able to join us on the sunny Stanford campus to learn more about Inherited Cardiovascular Disease, Athletes, and Sudden Cardiac Death. We have lined up an amazing program of national and international speakers who will give you practice-focused summaries of the state of the art in the field, as well as a glimpse into what we can expect on the near horizon. We hope you will find time at the breaks to catch up with old friends, make new acquaintances, and continue learning. I look forward to meeting you!
