ANDERSON CO, SC (WSPA) - Friday, across the upstate medical professionals will meet Saturday, Feb 23rd, to talk about the importance of cardiovascular health, at the annual Cardiovascular Symposium.
February is American Heart Month. AnMed Health has hosted its annual Cardiovascular Symposium for the last 10 years in February, for this very reason.
AnMed Health's Medical Director of Cardiac Catheterization Lab, surgeon Satish Surabhi, said the symposium is open to any medical professionals looking to learn about the latest advancements in in cardiovascular medicine.
Surabhi noted, while other practices could view the Anderson, Greenville, and Spartanburg hospitals as just small practices, everyone should know the latest medical treatments and procedures. That's only possible, through symposiums, like this one.
Another big reason for the event, Surabhi said, not everyone is working to live heart healthy.
"The first [of] several lectures will focus on preventive medicine. That means, we want people not to be in this Hybrid OR, not to get cardiovascular care, and how do we prevent that. and that is through healthy living," Surabhi said.
The symposium will feature national and regional speakers, as well as, live stream a heart surgery.
"It is very gratifying. Helps us keep [ourselves] on our toes," Surabhi said.
The Cardiovascular Symposium will be on Saturday, February 23, from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM. It's open to those in the medical profession looking to learn more about heart health. For more information click here.
