Overview

During this unique broadcast, ‘SGLT-2 Inhibitors - Another Piece of the Puzzle in Heart Failure’, Radcliffe Medical Education brings together a globally-renowned faculty to participate in a discussion centred around the presentation of the latest SGLT-2 inhibition data and how this translates to the treatment of Heart Failure patients.
