Welcome to TTRansforming Amyloidosis Care in Kentucky, an initiative to strengthen cardiac amyloidosis care across the state. Funded by a nationally competitive grant, this statewide program is led by UK HealthCare. A Center of Excellence in the management of cardiac amyloidosis (CA), UK’s CA program, directed by Dr. Gaurang Vaidya, is recognized for innovation in the diagnosis, treatment, and research of CA.

Cardiac amyloidosis is a common cause of heart failure but remains under-recognized. In Kentucky alone, over 10,000 patients are estimated to have CA, but only a small fraction of these patients are diagnosed. With highly effective therapies now available for treatment, awareness of cardiac amyloidosis is projected to increase, enabling greater adoption of effective and appropriate screening strategies among providers.

The goal of TTRansforming Amyloidosis Care in Kentucky is to raise awareness of cardiac amyloidosis. To achieve this objective, the following three sites across Kentucky were selected for a dinner presentation: Owensboro, KY; Hazard, KY; and Covington, KY.

Details and agenda for Owensboro, KY are as follows: 

Date & Location:
April 19th
6:30PM CST
The Miller House
301 E. 5th St.

6:00-6:30 CST: Sign-in
6:30-7:15 CST: TTRansforming Amyloidosis Care in Kentucky
7:15-7:30 CST: Q&A/Conclusion

The presentation will focus on recognizing and screening high-risk CA patients, understanding novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of CA, and inculcating an overall culture of CA awareness in the community. Providers involved in the care of CA patients or interested in the disease state are welcome to attend. In addition, opportunities for personal meetings with providers directly at their practice locations are available for those with questions or who wish to engage in deeper discussions about CA diagnosis and treatment.

We cordially invite you to register and join us as we take TTRansforming Amyloidosis Care in Kentucky across the region!
