Thanks to cutting-edge research, advances in medical diagnoses and treatment happen regularly. To help practitioners stay abreast of these changes in the cardiovascular field, the Pulse3 Foundation, in partnership with Covenant HealthCare, CMU Medical School, McLaren Bay Region, MidMichigan Health, Mobile Medical Response and St. Mary's Hospital will present "Getting to the Heart of the Matter: Strategies for Improving Cardiac Arrest Survival Rates" on November 2, 2016 at the Apple Mountain Conference Center (4519 N. River Road, Freeland, MI).
Offering continuing education credits, this conference is geared toward clinical practitioners in cardiovascular disease, EMS responders, ER personnel, internists, outpatient management specialists, primary care physicians, and anyone along the continuum of care with responsibility for coronary artery disease patients. The sharing of information and discussion among health-care providers results in better care for all patients.
