On behalf of my Co-Chairs, Shaun Goodman and Justin Ezekowitz, I am delighted to welcome you to the Beyond 2000 website. We hope that those of you who were able to participate in the 22nd annual symposium, held in conjunction with the annual CCS meeting in Montreal in October, 2016, enjoyed an enriching educational experience.

Development of our 2017 program, to be held Monday Oct. 23, is well underway. We will continue with the binocular approach we introduced in 2015 in order to provide registrants with targeted content that is tailored to individual interests. Specifically, the overall B2K symposium will be comprised of two sequential events. The first session is aimed at our traditional target of acute coronary syndromes; in the second, we’ll explore the increasingly common and important subjects of heart failure and atrial fibrillation. In both, key thought leaders will inform and engage us with insights that will influence the way we think and act. As always, illustrative cases will be presented to sharpen the discussion points. I invite you to peruse the programs posted on this site for further information.

If you have not already done so, please complete the simple registration process to access resource materials from prior years that are posted on this site.

I thank you for your continued interest in this symposium and look forward to seeing you on October 23rd in the beautiful city of Vancouver.
