The American Heart Association Science Sessions will be a fully virtual event taking place November 13-15, 2021 and will feature seven last-minute science sessions over 3 days.

The latest delays include new data from the landmark EMPEROR-Preserved trial of empagliflozin (Jardiance, Boehringer Ingelheim / Eli Lilly) in patients with HF with preserved ejection fraction; the PREPARE-IT 2 trial on ethyl icosapent (Vascepa, Amarin) as an outpatient treatment with COVID-19; and the Fitbit Heart Study, which will provide data on the detection of atrial fibrillation in patients using the Fitbit wearable device.
