Event Details

A Conference and Arts Festival for Heart Health and Medical

The Survive & Thrive Conference and Festival is a combination of:

  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Medical and wellness conference with research and best practices updates
  • Medical Humanities and restorative therapies such as Narrative Medicine

The academic, scientific, and artistic are all needed to understand the heart and healing in general.  Thus, the conference is dedicatted to blending and integrating the scientific and aesthetic experiences.  The conference and festival will feature many events that demonstarate this integration.  A play, concerts, poetry readings, and art displays will be featured along with scientific demonstrations, CPR instruction, and best practices of EMS.

The primary focus of the event is on the survivors, caregivers, families, and those who were lost to Sudden Cardiac Arrest and their families.  Between 300 and 350 thousand people die of SCA every year in the United States.  Yet, it is rare that an event focus on awareness of SCA and the actions we can take to increase the odds of survival and enable the survivors to thrive.  Accordingly, the program inclues academic presentations for Medical, Art, Music, Writing, Theater, Film, and workshops in Medical Humanities, CPR, and EMS.

We are dedicated to improving the odds of survival and of living well through education about Sudden Cardiac Arrest.  We are committed to engendering and facilitating restorative therapies for the sick and injured, their caretakers, families, and medical professionals.  Welcome to all who are dedicated to saving lives and the aesthetic experience in healing.
