    Join us for the 13th annual Cardiovascular Update conference being held at the Hyatt Regency/The Wynfrey Hotel in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, February 22, 2020.

    We hope you will make plans now to be one of the exhibitors and sponsors at Cardiovascular Update 2020. Cardiovascular Update 2020 is being offered through The CVA Medical Education Foundation. This annual continuing medical education meeting is intended to provide physicians and other clinicians with a practical and timely overview of important developments in the care of patients with cardiovascular disease. A spectrum of cardiovascular topics will be discussed as listed in the enclosed agenda. We have designed our conference for internists, family physicians, podiatrists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. 

    Exhibit fees are $1,500 and include conference registration and meals for two company representatives. Additional representatives may be added for an additional fee. Overnight hotel reservations should be made directly with the Hyatt Regency/The Wynfrey Hotel by calling (205) 705-1234.
