Heart Symposium in Greenville

You could say it was a meeting of the minds and hearts.

Heart surgeons from around the world are gathered in Greenville for a two-day conference to discuss the latest techniques in heart surgery. The two day symposium features guest speakers who are pioneers in their surgical fields. One of the highlights is operating room observations thanks to two-way audio and video communication between the operating rooms at Pitt County Memorial Hospital and the convention center.

The Carolina Heart Symposium comes on the heels of a new cardiovascular center at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Officials say they hope to make the gathering an annual event.
