ACRA 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting
On behalf of the Organising Committee for the 31st Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Australian Cardiovascular Health and Rehabilitation Association (ACRA), it gives us great pleasure to invite you to join us on the Gold Coast for an exciting educational conference. We are looking forward to finally hosting you again in person at our face-to-face event at Sea World Conference Centre, on Queensland's Gold Coast from Monday 8th to Wednesday 10th August 2022.
The ACRA 2022 ASM is a premier Australian conference for all health professionals interested in cardiovascular health, secondary prevention, cardiac rehabilitation, heart failure, and chronic disease management.
Through a combination of keynotes, plenaries, concurrent, abstracts and poster sessions, the conference supports the exchange of ideas and challenges around clinical and research issues, including the latest developments in the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease. The 2022 ASM will also host several internationally and nationally renowned guest speakers (TBC shortly).
During the conference we will reflect on our collective sense of purpose, what drives us to make the world a better place; learn from the innovative, resilient, and adaptable people who work in this space; build and strengthen our relationships with each other; and consider the opportunities and challenges the last two years has brought to health care delivery. This is reflected in our 2022 conference theme: "People, Purpose, Opportunity"
Please check back in here regularly for updates on registration, abstracts and the final program, and any changes in event details as required. You can follow us on twitter too @ACRAASM.

As the pandemic rapidly evolves we may need to make changes to the event format or speakers. COVID-19 regulations must also be adhered to by all delegates as per the Queensland Department of Health. All delegates must have a current COVID-19 vaccination certificate.
