Join us for the second annual Kentucky Cardiovascular & Limb Preservation Symposium (KCLP) at Norton Center for the Arts on the Centre College campus in historic Danville, Kentucky.

This event will bring together national level academic speakers and a diverse group of health care providers for an exchange on the cutting edge of management in both cardiac and vascular disease. It will be comprised of a full-day session of speakers with corresponding CME’s and CEU’s for attendees. In addition, there will be an industry sponsored vendor fair with some of the latest technologies available.
