Cardiovascular disease continues to be the leading cause of death in our society as well as a significant source of morbidity. Health care costs associated with cardiovascular disease are among the highest. More than ever a good partnership with our associates in primary care is critical to provide state of the art, streamlined and comprehensive cardiac care. Providing updates on "bread and butter" cardiology is essential and the interaction during the event should shore up communication and working relationships with providers on the front line.

The course directors of this one day symposium designed the program to include a series of 20 minute lectures on key cardiology topics applicable to the practice of general internal medicine.

Asthma affects over 300 million individuals worldwide, and between 5-10% of Americans, making it one of the most prevalent common chronic diseases. Insight into medical biology provides insight into disease mechanisms. As such, asthma research is shifting from a broad perspective to a narrower focus that includes cellular profiles, protein analysis and genetic markers combined with clinical measures. This symposium will address underlying pathophysiology of asthma, current issues related to heterogeneity and novel therapies.

There is a major growth in the incidence of atherosclerosis in the USA. Heart failure is a global problem with an estimated prevalence of 38 million patients worldwide; a number that is increasing with the aging of the population. Given this, there has been marked interest in different ways to treat patients both invasive and medically. In addition, the current management of cardiology has resulted in a growing need to understand the ways in how it could be approached. This two-day meeting is designed to educate physicians and other health care providers on advances in the diagnosis and treatment of complex cardiac diseases.
