Cardiac and pulmonary state affiliate conferences offer invaluable opportunities to gather relevant information and best practice recommendations, learn about cutting-edge research and technology, and network with other cardiac and pulmonary professionals.
LSI supports the mission and initiatives of each local, state and national conference we attend. Not only that, we’ve also created a partnership program designed to assist your local conference in a variety of ways.
