Conf.: Afib Research Important to Patients

Recommended Posts


Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference

Saturday afternoon at this year’s Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.® Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference, we will learn about patient-powered afib research and why it is so important to us.

During Patient Participation in Afib Research Using Consumer Devices, Dr. Greg Marcus will talk about what patient-powered research is. He will discuss patient involvement in, and findings of, the I-STOP-AFib N-of-1 Triggers Study, as well as other trials using consumer devices (such as the Heartline Study and the Apple Heart Study). Dr. Marcus will also share about upcoming studies using consumer devices.

Then, I’m excited to share an Overview of Patient-Driven Research, in which I’ll talk about the evolution of research from patient-powered to patient-driven, and even patient-funded. I’ll share what patient-driven and patient-funded research is happening and how patients can get involved.

Following our talks, we will have a Q&A with Dr. Marcus and me.

This session is particularly exciting because it will set up for the presentation on Sunday morning by Dr. Bianca Brundel about her research, which we in the afib patient community are helping to fund.

Patient-powered research gives us a voice in getting answers about topics that are important to us.

We look forward to seeing you August 4–6 in Dallas or via livestream!

To your health,
