On Monday, February 4, 2013, the Heart Hospital at SwedishAmerican will present the 18th annual Cardiology
Millennium Conference, a special one-day conference exploring many of the latest developments in the diagnosis
and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The conference provides an excellent opportunity for primary care
physicians, cardiovascular specialists, nurses, technical staff and social workers to earn CEU, CME, ASRT, LCSW, LCPC
and LCC credits.
The conference will be held at Giovanni’s Restaurant and Conference Center
in Rockford, Illinois. The event kicks off with Vincent Bufalino, MD, updating
attendees on the latest developments in cardiology and how healthcare
reform will change the practice of cardiovascular medicine. Under the
tenure of Barry Franklin, PhD, the cardiac rehabilitation program and stress
testing laboratories at William Beaumont Hospital have achieved national
and international recognition in the treatment and evaluation of coronary
artery disease. Dr. Franklin’s talk will focus on recent advances in preventive
cardiology and successful strategies for counseling cardiac patients. Keith
Swetz, MD, will define the differences between palliative care and hospice
care and when each should be considered in the care of advanced heart
failure. In addition, other experts will speak on congenital heart disease in
adults, new approaches to treating hypertension and updated indications of
PCI in the era of evidence-based medicine.
