Dear PaACC Members:
As we head toward summer vacations, many of you likely are planning to travel. You can join PaACC on an excursion to Italy - without leaving your office. Your Pennsylvania Chapter and the Associazione Nazionale Medici Cardiologi Ospedalieri (ANMCO) are a part of the American College of Cardiology’s International Outreach program, commonly called “twinning". Under this program, cardiovascular societies from around the world come together in a formal manner to connect members for education and friendship. This June, PaACC and ANMCO are joining together to produce the:
ANMCO-PAACC LATE BREAKING CLINICAL TRIALS REVIEW
This session will review critical late breaking clinical trials from the past nine months. Join our distinguished panel for a review of a selection of trials from ACC.23, AHA, and ESC including:
Date: June 5
Time: 1:00-2:00pm Eastern Daylight Time (1900 central European time)REGISTER HERE
The ANMCO-PaACC relationship was formed through a desire of both organizations to develop long-term relationships between cardiovascular professionals in the United States and Italy. PaACC was one of the pioneering chapters of the international outreach concept starting in 2011 with education presented at ACC Annual Scientific Sessions and continues to develop relationships today with education, leadership meetings, and exchange programs. Look for more collaborations from ANMCO and PaACC in the months to come!
Did You Know?
Several members of PaACC recently joined faculty from around the country to develop the Palliative Care for the Cardiovascular Clinician online course.
