AAHFN Advanced Heart Failure Symposium Update

The AAHFN Advanced Heart Failure Symposium has been rescheduled to November 6-7, 2020 to avoid conflict with Rosh Hashanah. AAHFN values you and your values. AAHFN recognizes that postponing this event has created challenges for all involved and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding.

We have updated the FAQ Document to help with answering travel, refund, and other questions. We will continue to update this document as needed. Again, thank you for your patience as we work through all the meeting logistics.
