Clinical Heart and Vascular Center
A Ubiquitous Presence
The annual AHA Scientific Sessions is always an exciting event, offering an opportunity for specialists in cardiovascular health to exchange ideas, challenge conclusions, and discuss innovations in their field. This year, as usual, UT Southwestern was well-represented, with nearly two dozen faculty members presenting their research or moderating sessions.
We invite you to review the reports of our physicians and scientists from the 2018 Scientific Sessions.
