Piña MD, MPH, FAHA, FACC, Professor of Medicine & Epidemiology and Population Health.

    Dr. Piña has a particular research and clinical interest in rehabilitation of heart disease in patients with heart failure. She completed a NHLBI HF ACTION trial and is in the process of examining recovery after exercise which could be translated to an additional parameter that may better predict prognosis of outcomes. In addition, there was a R21 to NHLBI to examine Vitamin D levels as another predictor from the HF ACTION database.

    Dr. Piña serves as advisor/consultant to the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health and their section of Epidemiology. She is also consultant to Novartis Pharmaceuticals and GE HealthCare. She is the author/co-author of over 100 publications in print, and a world-renowned speaker in the World Congress of Cardiology, the European Heart Failure Association and the Heart Failure Management Symposium on this subject. She is also a member of GWTG Scientific Committee and Heart Failure workgroup, a national spokesperson for Go Red for Women, and was on the writing committee of the new American Heart Association Guidelines for the Prevention of Heart Disease.

There's a brand new web site designed to help you locate the ideal continuing education opportunities to further your education in literally hundreds of disciplines. It's called FindCE.com.

Over 900 speakers have already registered, because we have made it so inexpensive to do so, and accept no commissions like speakers bureaus. We have structured it that way so that meeting planners would have such a large selection to choose from, making your educational experience the best it can be.

*There are more than 9,000 meetings listed, and meeting planners are coming by daily to register their own meetings, and to look for speakers.

*The list of educational media (cds, tapes, etc.) and online educational sites is growing.

* With up to 7,000 visitors and 60,000 hits each day, this promises to be, and probably already is, the leading resource for continuing education. 

An interdisciplinary forum for health practitioners to discuss topics with those in other fields which are common to multiple disciplines.
