2019 Call for Proposals

Submission Deadline: December 10, 2018

Submit Proposal

Dear Colleagues,


Planning is currently underway for the 2019 HFSA Annual Scientific Meeting to be held September 13-16th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The 2019 Program Committee would like to invite you to submit new session ideas, new educational formats, and any other ideas that you may find compelling. Proposals that include multidisciplinary faculty are highly encouraged and will be given preference when the topic area permits. We are also particularly interested in session proposals that go from basic mechanisms to clinical practice for a given topic area. All proposals will be considered by the Program Committee, which reserves the right to modify and combine proposals, including content and speakers.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Dennis McNamara, MD, MS
