Bring Your Device:
In promoting environmental sustainability, this year’s Cardiovascular Research Day will be paperless. Be sure to bring your laptop or mobile device! Research Blitz voting and poster judging will occur on line.  The Schedule of the Day and the Abstract Book will be available for download.  Complimentary Wi-Fi will be provided for all attendees.

Professional Photos Updated:
A professional photographer will be onsite throughout the day.  During the poster session, he will be available to update your professional headshot.  Free of charge to you and no sign up required!

Networking Opportunities:
Again this year, we offer all trainees the opportunity to expand their professional network through the Networking Game.  Trainees can pick up a “game board” at Participant Check In.  Once the game board is complete, trainees can turn it in to be entered for a chance to win one of four $500 travel awards.

Parking – You may park for free in the Manchester Street parking lot. We can not cover parking fees from other parking areas.
