PRLog - Jan. 3, 2014 - TUCSON, Ariz. -- New Cardiovascular Horizons (NCVH) continues its regional conference offerings with NCVH Tucson: Multidisciplinary Strategies for Optimal Cardiovascular Care on Saturday, January 18, 2014, at the Westin La Paloma Resort and Spa. Approximately 300 healthcare providers, including physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, and cath lab technologists, are expected to attend the one-day program.

NCVH Tucson program chairmen are Miguel Montero-Baker, MD, University Medical Center, Tucson; and Salvatore J. Tirrito, MD, Pima Heart Associates, Tucson.  The course directors are Luis R. Leon, MD, University of Arizona Health Science Center, Tucson; and John P. Pacanowski, MD, Agave Surgical Associates, Tucson.

Fifteen experts in cardiovascular medicine will deliver presentations on new developments, treatments, and technology available for general cardiology, interventional cardiology, peripheral vascular disease, electrophysiology and cardiothoracic surgery. Attendees will learn about new imaging and testing tools for diagnosis and treatment, as well as the relationship between peripheral artery disease (PAD) and other cardiovascular diseases.

Registration includes accreditation, breakfast and lunch. Physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, and cath lab technologists will be eligible for up to 8.0 CME/CE credits.

Industry representatives from more than 30 sponsoring companies will display products and be on hand to answer questions from attendees.

Taking place in conjunction with NCVH Tucson will be the My Leg, My Choice Foundation 5K/2K Fun Run & Walk, to help the foundation raise awareness of unnecessary leg amputations. The race will start at 8 a.m. on Sunday, January 19, followed by a free community health screening, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., sponsored by Amedisys. Healthcare professionals will be on hand to perform ankle-brachial index (ABI) and blood pressure tests, as well as screen for varicose veins. ABI evaluates adequacy of circulation in legs and vascular risk of PAD. Running specialists from Performance Footwear, a Tucson-based running store, will perform gait analysis.
