In conjunction with the 2020 Heart Failure Awareness Week, sponsored by the Heart Failure Society of America the CardioNerds are supporting the society’s efforts to promote heart failure awareness, patient education, and heart failure prevention by launching our Heart Failure Awareness CardioNerds Series.
This series will include topics that include the evaluation to new onset heart failure, approach to guideline directed medical therapy, approach to advanced heart failure therapies, LVAD 101, heart transplantation 101, atrial fibrillation and heart failure, structural interventions in heart failure, an in-depth discussion on heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, an approach to palliative care in heart failure and so much more!
This heart failure series is a tribute to Dr. David Taylor. Dr. Taylor was a heart failure attending at the Cleveland Clinic. He died early morning of Thursday, February 5th 2020. We remember him for the legend he is. A passionate clinician, skilled educator, devoted mentor.
We also dedicate the series in memory of Dr. Ken Baughman who served as director of the cardiology division at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Md., before being recruited to Brigham Hospital in 2002. He was such a hero in cardiology. Dr. Myron Weisfeldt, a cardiology great in his own right, called Dr. Baughman a physician’s physician, and an exemplar of how you can lead and teach as a model to others.
