About The Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference

The 2016 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.

[ozy_vc_divider caption=”Why You Should Attend In Person”]
[ozy_vc_spacer][ozy_vc_divider caption_size=”h4″ caption=”This conference is for you if:”]
  • Your afib disrupts your work, your life, your play, or your family
  • You are frustrated from trying to live with your afib
  • You are afraid that your afib may lead to a stroke, heart failure, or dementia
  • You have questions about what you can do to manage your afib
  • You want to get rid of your afib and get your life back

Our all-star faculty of world-renowned atrial fibrillation experts will help you to understand what you need to know about afib and how to work with your healthcare team to get the best results. They will explain your options for treating afib and talk about the most recent developments in afib treatment. They will provide much-needed answers to your questions.

The purpose of this conference is to help patients and their families learn what they need to know to understand afib, manage their treatment, and even get rid of their afib.

Showing up matters to you, and to your family, too. You will learn what afib is, why it is a problem, and how to cope with it, including your options for getting in rhythm and staying in rhythm. Have you ever wanted to ask your questions of top afib experts, or engage in a dialogue with them? Now is your chance. One attendee said that he got thousands of dollars’ worth of value just from the discussions with the experts during the breaks. You just can’t do that if you’re not here.

Need more reasons to attend? How about this? Many have found their solution and are no longer in afib. And those who have chosen to live with afib and have attended previously are always the first to register because they cannot imagine missing out on the latest information that could truly be life-saving. Attendees have come from throughout the United States as well as Canada, the Caribbean, and the United Kingdom.

So don’t wait. Register now as seating will be limited.

  • Hear about the work and research of these afib pioneers and innovators
  • Learn about the latest treatment options and what you need to know
  • Ask these experts your questions
  • Even ask them more questions during the breaks

One attendee told us last year that he got thousands of dollars’ worth of value just from the discussions during the breaks. You just can’t do that if you’re not here.

[ozy_vc_sheading caption=”Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference” caption_size=”h4″ accent_color=”#000000″][ozy_vc_sheading caption=”Frequently Asked Questions/Comments” caption_size=”h4″ accent_color=”#000000″]

1. 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 direct flights from where most major heart centers are located so that our faculty can get here easily. And that means that you can, too!

2. 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 break 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.

3. Can’t I just watch the videos?
It will take several months to edit and post the videos, and you could be losing valuable time in getting your afib under control. If you attend in person, you will get access to the videos automatically as a free gift.

4. It’s too expensive to travel
We announce the dates of the conference many months in advance so you can get very reasonable air fares. And the group rates that we have negotiated at the hotel — just $119 per night, including Internet — are an incredible bargain, especially for such a nice venue so close to the airport. 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.

5. It’s too much hassle to travel
There are direct flights to DFW from just about everywhere, and the hotel is only a short 5-7 minute ride on the hotel shuttle from the terminal, which will take you right to the hotel door. If you can’t get a direct flight into DFW, you can probably get one on Southwest into Love Field, which is about 30 minutes from the hotel. And Uber and Lyft are available at both airports, too.

6. What is included in my conference investment?
For only a $147 investment, you’ll get:
• 2.5 days of expert presentations, learning from medical professionals at the forefront of this field. ($297 Value)
• Live Q&A opportunities at the end of each presentation, where you get your questions answered and hear expert answers to questions from patients experiencing health issues similar to yours.
• Allotted time each day to visit exhibitors who are sharing the most up-to-date information and tools related to afib and your health.
• Opportunities to talk with panel members and other patients between sessions.
• A delicious (and afib-healthy) lunch on Friday and Saturday and snack breaks each morning and afternoon. ($375 Value)
For an additional $30, you get an All-Access Pass that allows access to the Friday Evening VIP Reception where you can visit with doctors and other afib patients. ($75 Value)
