September 19 is the day that events take place around the world for aortic disease education and for information and support for survivors. We look to cardiovascular surgeons and cardiologists to take the lead in these events, working with their hospital marketing department to create a meaningful program that enhances patient care, supports the community of survivors, and leads to good will for the institution.
And, when you hold an event on September 19, you are part of a huge global effort that puts the spotlight on aortic disease and saves lives.
We recommend that, if you would like to host an event, planning should begin in March. Here are guidelines.
