Yale’s cardiovascular update

The symposium “Updates on Cardiovascular Disease for the Internist” drew approximately 100 doctors, nurses and clinicians from Yale New Haven Health, including Greenwich Hospital. The symposium took place at the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich.

Yale School of Medicine faculty members and Greenwich Hospital physicians discussed novel testing methods, medications, invasive treatment options and more during the daylong event.

The symposium was coordinated by Greenwich Hospital’s Dr. Christopher Howes, chief of cardiology, and Dr. Sasanka Jayasuriya, who are both assistant professors of medicine at Yale School of Medicine.

“The symposium was an effective way to condense and deliver state-of-the-art information in cardiovascular care to providers taking care of patients at the grass root level,” said Jayasuriya. “It makes it easier for cardiologists to partner with our referring clinicians.”
