Dear PaACC Chapter Colleagues,
It has been an exciting few weeks for the PaACC and ACC advocacy teams and I wanted to use this message to highlight a few recent advocacy efforts/results on behalf of our patients, cardiologists, and cardiovascular team members:
This legislative victory highlights the importance of sustained attention to advocacy, particularly within our state – we need to continue to focus on important issues such as reforming Act 112 and your engagement is critical – email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get involved.
It is worth noting the above accomplishments happened largely due to engagement and grassroots efforts from our members but also in part via political action committee (PAC) donations from the ACC’s PAC, HeartPAC. It's never too late to get involved and/or make a donation to the HeartPAC - a non-partisan organization that focuses on the optimal delivery of care to patients by cardiologists and cardiovascular team members – click here to do so.
Finally - don’t forget to vote on Tuesday!
A reminder - as I have noted in my prior emails, PaACC is co-sponsoring the Mid-Atlantic Capital Cardiology Symposium, taking place in Washington, DC from November 19-20. The lineup for the conference is fantastic and includes the annual PaACC FIT Jeopardy competition, an FIT Forum, and a day full of interactive, educational CME/CNE programming for the entire cardiovascular team. I hope to see many of you there – click here for registration information!
Please continue to visit our website at www.pcacc.org, follow us on Twitter @PAChapterACC, and reach out any time via email@example.com with questions, ideas, needs or if you would like to get involved in PaACC activities.
