Welcome to HRS 2020 Science

Challenges often present new opportunities to accelerate advancements. Now more than ever, we must continue to work together to fulfill our shared mission to end death and suffering due to heart rhythm disorders. In pursuit of this mission, the Heart Rhythm Society created the HRS 2020 Science, a three-part series featuring HRS-trusted science, education, news, and updates. Released over three consecutive months – May, June, and July – HRS 2020 Science is delivered in a convenient on-demand format, allowing users to watch recorded presentations as their schedules permits. Additionally, special Bonus Sessions were released in August.

HRS 2020 Science Release One is supported in part by unrestricted educational grants from AtriCure, Inc.; Biosense Webster, Inc.; and Boston Scientific Corporation.

HRS 2020 Science Releases Two and Three as well as Bonus Sessions are supported in part by unrestricted educational grants from Abbott; Atricure, Inc.; Biosense Webster, Inc.; Boston Scientific Corporation; Medtronic, Inc.; and Pfizer Foundation.
