Approximately 6.7 million adults in the United States have heart failure. The incidence of heart failure is projected to increase by 46% from 2012 to 2030, affecting more than 8 million people.

Given the growing prevalence of heart failure and innovation in new therapies, CRF recognizes the importance of creating a high-quality educational conference featuring new diagnostic approaches and advanced technologies to treat various forms of heart failure.
