Women in Cardiology Narratives in Medicine

Join other women cardiologists from Pennsylvania for Narratives in Medicine, happening in Pittsburgh on March 16 at 6:30pm and in Philadelphia on March 28 at 6:30pm.  Facilitators from Temple University School of Medicine will lead each group through an exercise to reflect on our profound experiences in cardiology practice. This program draws on the study of art and literature to enhance participants’ listening and observation skills and expand their view of others. Click here to sign up; space is limited.

Comment Period Open on Noncompete Clauses/Restrictive Covenants

As you may have heard, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has proposed a new rule to ban noncompete clauses which is based on their preliminary finding that noncompete clauses constitute an unfair method of competition. The ACC and the PaACC will both be submitting comments to the FTC, and we encourage you to make your voices heard as well! You can use the following methods:

      • If you are a member of PA MED click here, log in, and give your opinion.
      • The Federal Trade Commission is in an official comment period on this subject as it considers a new rule. You can submit comments here until March 10.
