    • Upcoming Events - On December 8, 2011 WIN will host a Gender Data Forum in Washington, DC. The forum, hosted in partnership with the American College of Cardiology, will be a unique opportunity for trial investigators to gather and present the gender related data from major ACS/AMI trials around the world. Representatives from industry, regulatory bodies and patient/professional groups will attend to discuss how the data might impact their fields. The event will be the first of two forums, with the second focused on cardiovascular devices slated for next June. To view the agenda for the December 8 forum, click HERE.
