About The Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference

The 2017 Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.  Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference will provide vital information and resources for you and your loved ones.

StopAfib.org invites you to this weekend conference to help patients and their families understand atrial fibrillation, manage treatment, and possibly become afib free.

As the most common irregular heartbeat, afib can disrupt your life, work, and peace of mind. A serious health threat, afib can lead to stroke, heart failure, or dementia. The conference provides information and valuable resources to better manage your condition and reclaim your life from afib. Through this conference you can get in rhythm and stay in rhythm.

All-star, world-renowned atrial fibrillation experts will share the most recent developments about afib treatment along with ways you can work with your healthcare team for the best possible results. During the Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm. conference, attendees will have the chance to interact with these afib experts through panels and question-and-answer sessions.

Because StopAfib.org is a non-profit organization created by patients for patients, the information at the patient conference is easy to understand and is tailored to those who are living with this serious condition.

FAQ

Why can't you bring the conference to me in my city?


We hear this request over and over, but truthfully, this conference is a lot of work. We just can’t possibly move it around the country to every city. And, to get the top faculty the doctors that you most want to hear we need to make it convenient for them to get here. We hold the conference in a city with non-stop flights from where most major heart centers are located so that our faculty can get here easily. And that means that you can, too!

Why should I attend in person when I can watch the videos?


Would you look at a picture or a video of a meal from your favorite restaurant and consider that to be just as good as being there? Of course not; it’s just not the same as actually being there and enjoying it. While you can watch the videos of our patient conference, it’s just not the same as being there in person. By being there, you get to hear the afib experts, pioneers, and innovators, learn about the latest treatment options and what you need to know, ask the experts your questions, even ask them more questions during the breaks, and meet other afib patients and share experiences with them.

Showing up in person matters to you and to your family too. One attendee said that he got thousands of dollars’ worth of value just from talking with the doctors during the breaks. You just can’t do that if you’re not here. And get this the first people to sign up are usually the people who have attended before they don’t want to miss out on life-saving information and you shouldn’t either. Be here with us.

Besides, it will take several months to edit and post the videos, and you could be losing valuable time in getting your afib under control.

Travel is too expensive and too much of a hassle.


We announce the dates of the conference many months in advance so you can get very reasonable air fares.

And staying at the conference hotel makes it easy to get to and from the meeting in just minutes. And you can get those rates for three days before and three days after the conference so you can make a vacation out of your visit here.
