Updated:Jan 29,2015
Scientific Sessions 2016

Sessions attendees were invited to participate in the second annual AHA Sessions Walking Challenge sponsored by  SANOFI REGENERON.

The Challenge was held during the 2014 AHA Scientific Sessions, November 15-19 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago. It was a great opportunity to have some fun and compete against fellow attendees to be on the top of our leaderboard. The first 2,000 qualified registrants were provided an iHealth Activity Tracker to track the number of steps.
In addition, this year participants had the opportunity to monitor their blood pressure during the Challenge.  Blood pressure kiosks were placed throughout the convention center and completed measurements were synced to the devices. In addition, results were displayed on the leaderboard.
