The program of the 2014 Heart Failure (HF) symposium has been designed to continue a tradition of providing a comprehensive, high level and clinically relevant update on prevention, diagnosis and management of heart failure (HF). The program includes lectures presented by experts in the field combined with interactive panel discussions.

As in past years, the program was designed to provide a high level and clinically oriented update with the goal of improving the care of patients with heart failure. I hope that you will join us for an exciting symposium.
