2023 Family Heart Global Summit

Join the 2023 Family Heart Global Summit

The Family Heart Foundation invites you to “look through a broader lens.” Join us for the 9th annual Family Heart Global Summit, the only conference solely dedicated to aligning stakeholders and catalyzing solutions to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in people with inherited lipid disorders, including familial hypercholesterolemiahomozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, and high lipoprotein(a).

For this year's Summit, the theme is "Through a Wider Lens: Lipid Management Across Populations and Lifetimes," and it will convene academia, industry, public health stakeholders, and individuals living with inherited lipid disorders to provide engagement through didactic learning, expert panel discussions, and most importantly audience participation.

Don’t be left out of the conversation as we discuss how to bridge gaps in the use of available data and AI, addressing health equity, and implementing best practices to avoid disease development in populations at risk and provide support to all who are struggling with a broken healthcare system.
