5th Annual Cardiovascular Risk Assessment Summit

5th Annual Cardiovascular Risk Assessment Summit

This is the first in a new category of entries in the journal; a second one follows it. This category will be a series of reports describing presentations given at scientific conferences. These reports will enable those who were not present to get a good idea of the meeting’s content and provide attendees with a concise summary for future reference. This report addresses the Center for Business Intelligence’s 5th Annual Cardiovascular Risk Assessment Summit, held in Alexandria, Virginia, on January 26–27, 2011. The authors, Drs Larry Satin and David Gutstein, were the meeting’s cochairs. Two workshops were presented on the morning of day 1. The main conference sessions then commenced in the afternoon (chaired by Dr Satin) and continued throughout day 2 (chaired by Dr Gutstein). In a couple of places, the authors have made comments that augment the report of the material presented by speakers: these comments are clearly identified in the text. —Editor
