Webinar: Influenza in Cardiovascular Disease

August 26, 2020

4:00 pm CDT -5:00 pm CDT

Join us for a non-CE learning event on flu and cardiovascular disease. Learn why the flu vaccine is especially important for individuals with a history of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and stroke, as well as the complications associated with influenza. We’ll also discuss vaccine adherence strategies in the era of Covid-19 and provide practical clinical takeaways you can apply as we head into flu season this year.
