Whether or not you are in the Big Easy going from room-to-room for exciting presentations or seeing the social media accounts flooded with late-breaking clinical trials, it always exciting to see the new science in our incredible field and reconnect with colleagues. On that note, we will gather as a chapter at ACC.23 and hope many of you will join us:
