The "Southeastern Cardio-Oncology Conference" themed "The Future is Now," will focus on the evolving landscape of cardio-oncology and amyloidosisis. The event is presented by the University of North Carolina Health System, Duke Heart Center, and the Duke Cancer Network in collaboration with Duke Cancer Institute.

Using case studies and interactive presentations to highlight critical moments in the prevention, screening, assessment, management and follow-up of patients with amyloidosis and cardiovascular risk and disease, this program will prepare participants to utilize practical resources to optimize patient care.

Avirup Guha, MBBS, MPH, director of Cardio-Oncology at the Medical College of Georgia, will present the keynote address: "The Evolving Landscape of Risk Stratification with AI." Guha's research explores applying new predictive and early diagnostic AI models in oncology populations.

Target Audience: Cardiologists, primary care providers, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists, advanced practice providers, and all those who contribute to the care of oncology and cardiology patients.

Learning Outcomes: At the end of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Assess patient risk for developing cardiovascular dysfunction in oncology
  • Discuss current guidelines for managing cardiovascular dysfunction in oncology patients
  • Describe techniques to prevent cardio-toxicity in patients before, during, and after cancer
  • Discuss the future of the cardio-oncology specialty in cancer care
  • Assess patient risk for developing amyloidosis
  • Discuss current guidelines for managing amyloidosis
