The end of the year is always an exciting time at UT Southwestern. That’s because the findings we spotlight at the annual American Heart Association (AHA) Scientific Sessions – whether moderating, presenting new discoveries, or sharing clinical advances – fuels discussion beyond this remarkable conference well into the following year.

We hope to continue these conversations with you throughout 2022 and beyond. Be on the lookout for the printed version of this special issue of Physician Update, which will arrive in your mailboxes early in the year.

In the meantime, please enjoy the information contained in the reports linked below. It is our pleasure and privilege to make them available to you.
