It is the policy of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) to ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor in all its sponsored educational activities. Commercial support from industry does not influence educational content, faculty selection, and/or faculty presentations, and therefore, does not compromise the scientific integrity of the educational activity.
