Atrial fibrillation is the most commonly treated cardiac arrhythmia in the world and is responsible for a host of chronic complications, including embolic events and stroke, heart failure, and vascular dementia. Optimal strategies for the early diagnosis and management of this prevalent condition have long been an active interest of clinical investigation. We are very excited to be hosting one of the most prominent and well-published figures in this field, Dr. Emelia Benjamin. Dr. Benjamin is a Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the Boston University Schools of Medicine and Public Health, also serving as Provost for Faculty Development at Boston University Medical Campus. Her research has focused on the intersection of epidemiology and atrial fibrillation, along with its genetic underpinnings and downstream health outcomes. Please join us for her lecture titled, “How do we prevent atrial fibrillation and its complications?”
