Meeting Details

The HiRO Annual Symposium brings together the Canadian community of cardiogenetics specialists, researchers, patients, families and industry partners, with a goal to improve the care of families with inherited heart disease. Learn more and see details of past meetings here.

The 2023 HiRO Symposium will take place June 9-10th 2023 in Ottawa. We're exciting to be welcoming keynote speakers Dr. Kris Cunningham, Dr. Katherine Allan and international guest speaker Dr. Susan Etheridge.
