The 9th Annual ACRE/CNAHA Cardiovascular Research Symposium and CNAHA/ACRE China Night

Together with the Academy of Cardiovascular Research Excellence (ACRE), the Chinese American Heart Association (CNAHA) successfully hosted the 9th Annual ACRE/CNAHA Cardiovascular Research Symposium and CNAHA/ACRE China Night on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at Furama Seafood Rest (富丽华海鲜酒家), 2828 S Wentworth Ave., Chicago, IL, during the annual American Heart Association (AHA) scientific sessions.

Here are highlights for these events:
