Emerging Science Series

The AHA recognizes important scientific results do not always conveniently coincide with the timing of AHA Scientific Sessions in November. The AHA Emerging Science Series will be one-hour professional quality webinars held two or three times per year. Each session will have two 30-minute blocks consisting of presentations of original research from the following categories: late breaking clinical trials, clinical trial updates of previously presented LBCTs and late breaking basic science. A steering committee will make the final selection from the reviewers’ comments and decide whether to present material from one of the following additional categories: major bench-to-bedside advances, major conference proceedings and major guidelines/policy statements. The webinars will be viewable from a computer or iPad and the series will be archived for on-demand viewing.  A panel of moderators and discussants will spend more time than allows at November’s Scientific Sessions for discussion and questions. Attendees can ask questions electronically before the event. This is a lecture-based activity.
