Join AACVPR at the Comprehensive Cardiac Rehabilitation Workshop in Wisconsin
AACVPR and the La Crosse Exercise and Health Program at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse (UWL) are once again joining together to offer a Comprehensive Cardiac Rehabilitation workshop.This will be the 43rd consecutive year the La Crosse Exercise and Health Program has offered this workshop, and the fourth year of the partnership. This will take place from April 20-23, 2020 in La Crosse, Wisc.
The workshop is designed to provide an up-to-date overview covering the many aspects of inpatient and outpatient cardiac rehabilitation. The curriculum will include information on exercise physiology, exercise prescription, program administration, and secondary prevention strategies that are essential to the everyday practice of cardiac rehabilitation. The key factor that has made this workshop a success for many years is the quality of the speakers. Every one of the speakers is involved at the state or national level, and more importantly, they all are involved in the clinical practice of cardiac rehabilitation on a day-to-day basis. They are passionate about what they do and eager to share their expertise with attendees.
According to John Porcari, Ph.D., Executive Director of the La Crosse Exercise and Health Program and a Past-President of AACVPR, “We strive to foster an informal, workshop-type atmosphere. Our philosophy is that each individual comes to the workshop with specific questions. Our goal is to a make sure that each attendee gets those questions answered before they leave La Crosse.”
