KMH Cardiology Centres Inc is pleased to host the second annual “Circulate C-CHANGE” Conference. This interactive and practical program is designed for family physicians, specialists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and other primary care practitioners with an interest in cardiovascular disease prevention and management.

This yearʼs conference is devoted to covering the C-CHANGE Guidelines, with updates from Hypertension, Obesity, and Cardiac Rehabilitation and the latest clinical trial results and challenges facing the care of multi-morbidity patients with complex conditions with a focus on heart failure. This meeting brings together a multidisciplinary faculty of primary care and specialty experts with an opportunity for participants to discuss management and implementation of the C-CHANGE guidelines for improved patient care.

Organizers have heard strongly from health care practitioners against large meetings, as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19. In an abundance of caution at this time to ensure the health and safety of all meeting participants, THEY will provide an online meeting only, so you can enjoy the program in the comfort of your home or office.
