President's Message

march 2021

Dear PaACC Members:

March typically signifies the College's Annual Scientific session with late-breaking clinicals and just-in-time education that updates our knowledge and stimulates our curiosity. This year, ACC.21 has moved to the month of May and will take place virtually. While we are sad we cannot gather in person, the virtual meeting is sure to excite and engage. I encourage you to put the time aside on May 15-17 to join the live sessions which will continue the outstanding education we expect from ACC. These sessions will be available for asynchronous learning after the conference as well. Win - Win for all!

This month the PaACC is asking for those who are invested in leading at the local level to let us know if they would like to join our state chapter Council, Task Forces or Committees. Volunteering in small and large ways here in the chapter is an ideal way to expand your network, give back to the profession and engage. Simply take the two minutes it takes to fill out this form
so we can match you up to our opportunities.

Finally, congrats to our FIT Jeopardy teams who competed in February and to the winners from Einstein Medical Center:
Mohammad Al-Sarie, MD, Jafar Alzubi, MD and Napatt Kanjanahattakij, MD. Big thanks to Marietta Ambrose, MD, FACC and Sri Adusumalli, MD, FACC for helping organize and inspire.  

Until next month,

Katie Berlacher, MD, FACC

President, Pennsylvania Chapter ACC

Governor, Western Pennsylvania

Reflections on Starting Residency in the Middle of a Global Pandemic

I never imagined I would start my residency in the middle of a global pandemic. That I would be worried about PPE availability. Or be afraid of contracting a new virus that scientists were racing to find more information on, a virus that could potentially have life threatening consequences. To read the rest, click here.
