The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association is excited to bring the International Stroke Conference 2016 to the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California. We warmly welcome and encourage Los Angeles healthcare professionals to attend the world’s largest meeting dedicated to the science and treatment of cerebrovascular disease and to experience:
- The opportunity to network with more than 4,000 cerebrovascular experts representing 60 countries.
- The exceptional programming emphasizing basic, clinical and translational sciences as they evolve toward a more complete understanding of stroke pathophysiology with the goal to develop more effective prevention and treatment.
- More than 1,500 compelling special symposia, debates and abstract presentations that focus on numerous topics from 21 stroke-related categories. Sessions in clinical categories will center on stroke community risk factors, emergency care, acute neuroimaging, endovascular and nonendovascular treatment, diagnosis, cerebrovascular occlusive disease, in-hospital treatment, and outcomes of stroke. Sessions in basic science categories focus on vascular biology in health and disease, experimental mechanisms and models, and basic and translational neuroscience of stroke recovery. Further specialized topics include rehabilitation and recovery, pediatric stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, nursing, preventive strategies, vascular cognitive impairment, aneurysm, subarachnoid hemorrhage and other neurocritical management, and vascular malformations.
- Late-Breaking Science and Ongoing Clinical Trials abstract presentations.
The International Stroke Conference also offers outstanding pre-conference programming on Feb. 16:
- State-of-the-Science Stroke Nursing Symposium, focusing on nursing issues along the continuum of stroke care (including ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke management, rehabilitation and program development)
- ISC Pre-Conference Symposium I: Stroke in the Real World - Working Man Blues: Challenges in Inpatient Stroke Care
- ISC Pre-Conference Symposium II (Students/Trainees/Early Career Professionals): Emerging Trends for Stroke Trials: Biomarkers, Adaptive Trial Design, Repair Trials, and New Endpoints
Coverage from around the world resulted in more than 1.4 billion media impressions from nearly 1,500 stories for ISC 2013. Impressions from major media outlets included the Associated Press, CBS News, ABC News, Good Morning America, Fox News, The Telegraph, Washington Post, USA Today, LA Times, HealthDay, Cardiology Today, and many more. Social media activities during ISC 2013, including live tweeting on Twitter during the three news conferences, resulted in a total of 1,309 Tweets and 7.4 million impressions.
We hope you will join us in February 2015 for this extraordinary cerebrovascular educational event in your vibrant, beautiful city.
