Program 6 (Dec 19, 2011, 2 pm EST): Personalized Medicine: Genetic testing for Familial Dilated Cardiomyopathy: DNA biomarkers for Familial Dilated CardiomyopathyThe sixth webinar in this series will address how DNA biomarkers and genetic screening can be used in the setting of dilated cardiomyopathy. This short state-of-the-art webinar will provide critical updates for Cardiologists from leading experts in the field of genetic screening and dilated cardiomyopathy.

Current state of the art genetic screening tests will be outlined as well as how these tests can be best used in your clinical practice to manage patient care. Practical guidelines for how and when to use these tests will be discussed. The leading experts include Dr. Jeffrey Towbin and Dr. Ray Hershberger.

Early identification of patients and family members at risk of developing dilated cardiomyopathy may prevent or delay the complications that accompany this serious form of heart disease and improve patient lives.

 

Program 5 (November 2, 12 EST): Personalized Medicine: Genetic Testing for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: DNA Biomarkers for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy.The fifth webinar in this series will address how DNA biomarkers and genetic screening can be used in the setting of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This short 30 minute state-of-the-art webinar will provide critical updates for Cardiologists from leading experts in the field of genetic screening and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Current state of the art genetic screening tests will be outlined as well as how these tests can be best used in your clinical practice to manage patient care. Practical guidelines for how and when to use these tests will be discussed. The leading experts include Dr. Jeffrey Towbin and Dr. Ray Hershberger. Early identification of patients and family members at risk of developing hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may prevent or delay the complications that accompany this serious form of heart disease and improve patient lives.

 

Program 4 (Oct 3, 2 pm EST): Personalized Medicine: Genetic Testing for Sudden Cardiac Death: How are DNA biomarkers best used to identify individuals at risk for Sudden Cardiac Death? The fourth webinar in this series will address how DNA biomarkers and genetic screening can be used in the setting of sudden cardiac death. This short 30 minute webinar will provide critical updates for Cardiologists from leading experts in the field of genetic screening and sudden cardiac death. These leading experts include Dr. Silvia Priori, Dr. Peter Schwartz, and Dr. Jeffery Towbin. Current state of the art genetic screening options will be discussed as well as how these screening options can be applied to your clinical practice.

Early identification of patients and family members at risk of developing sudden cardiac death through genetic screening is an important step forward in cardiovascular medicine.
