Event description


Join us for dinner on Tuesday, May 7, 2019 (5:30 pm to 10:00 pm PST) at the InterContinental Mark Hopkins in San Francisco where our Network Investigators will present their research and discuss our continuing mandate to support arrhythmia research and translate the knowledge generated from their research to the greater community.

CANet’s strategy is to invent, prove, and implement innovative solutions to achieve its vision of access for all Canadians to early detection, effective prevention, efficient and timely treatment of arrhythmia and related conditions, through a transformed, patient-driven care model. This unique opportunity will bring together international experts specializing in arrhythmia research for our discussions on advancing CANet-funded research.
