The three-day meeting will begin on Thursday morning with the Cardiovascular Club meeting followed by State-of-the-Art lectures, Mentored Oral Sessions, and afternoon workshops.

Workshops on Thursday and Friday include Manuscript Preparation and Peer-Reviewed Publication, Moving Your Clinical Case Presentation into a Published Manuscript, Conflict Resolution: Lessons from Business, Diplomacy, & Theatre, and How to Design & Give a Workshop, and Career Development for Clinician Educators. Other sessions include a joint plenary poster session, clinical case symposia, Meet the Experts for Breakfast, Concurrent Subspecialty Scientific Sessions, and a joint plenary session entitled "From Molecules to Humans: The Impact of the Microbiome on Obesity and Inflammation." The annual Jazz Luncheon is held on Saturday, which is always a popular event with live jazz and lots of local cuisine. Come join us in New Orleans for fun and stimulating scholarship.
