HBPRCA 2014 ASM in conjunction with State of the Heart

The HBPRCA was delighted to join with several other societies in the “City of Churches” at Adelaide Convention Centre. This excellent meeting allowed members to network with colleagues and learn a great deal through the fantastic scientific program. Future ASM’s will likely capitalise on the success of this joint meeting structure, though in 2015 it is time for a stand-alone meeting at the Baker IDI
