Our “China-USA Cardiovascular Symposium” and “China Night” at 2016 America Herat Association (AHA) Scientific Session toke place on November 12th, 2016 in Bourbon Orleans Hotel in New Orleans (Orleans Ballroom, Bourbon Orleans Hotel 717 Orleans Street, New Orleans, LA 70116, 32819).  This event included a scientific symposium, a young investigator award (YIA) competition and a dinner reception.

The afternoon “Metabolic Vascular Disease Symposium” was composed of two sessions: 1) a featured scientific presentations session and 2) an abstract-based Young Investigator Award Competition, with awards for the top three presenters. After the symposium, the evening “China Night” event was a dinner enriched with remarks from AHA, NIH, CAAC, CNAHA and  Leadership, a Scientific Keynote speech, opportunities to meet Scientific Review Officers announcement of the winners of the Young Investigator Award, and of course, a great singing party afterwards.

We have more than 150 attendees for both events on November 12th, 2016. We offered YIA awards to 10 outstanding young scientists. Our next “Cardiovascular Disease Symposium” and “China Night” at AHA SS take place on Nov 11th 2017 @ AHA scientific Session at Anaheim California.
