4th Annual
National PERT Symposium

Highlights from our past meeting + preparing for 2019

On behalf of The PERT Consortium™, we hope you found the meeting last month at the Sheraton Grand in downtown Nashville informative, productive, and rewarding.

"The response to the PERT initiative
has been overwhelmingly positive."

We’re thrilled to have once again been able to bring together medical colleagues from around the world as leaders in pulmonary embolism research, prevention, and treatment.

The response to the PERT initiative has been overwhelmingly positive. In only four years, the list of distinguished participants and attendees joining The PERT Consortium™ for the Annual Symposium & Bussiness Meeting has continued to grow.

This year's meeting was no exception. With an out-of-the-park turn out from participants and attendees alike, The PERT Consortium™'s 4th Annual National PERT Symposium & Business Meeting was an incredible success. Workshops were standing room only, breakout sessions were highly productive, and the auditorium was packed.

We want to thank all of our participants and attendees for making the 4th Annual National PERT Symposium & Business Meeting a true milestone for The PERT Consortium™.  Our multi-disciplinary mission to continue the advancement of pulmonary embolism research, management, and treatment will continue to have a positive impact on PE now and into the future.

To celebrate the success of this year's meeting, we'd like to share with you a gallery of photos from our Nashville meeting that captures the essence of The PERT Consortium- all of the professional, motivated, and like-minded medical colleagues- both domestic and international, that make our organization a success. Follow the link below!

As always, stay tuned for more news and events happening with The PERT Consortium. We'll be posting information for the 5th Annual National PERT Symposium coming to Boston in the Fall of 2019.
