Dear PaACC Chapter Colleagues,
My name is Srinath Adusumalli, and I am honored to be serving you and PaACC as the organization’s new president, with a term spanning the next 18 months. I am also the Eastern PA governor and thrilled to be working with our new Western PA governor, Ross Peterson, MD, FACC, as well as our chapter executive, Jennifer Ray Beckman, to lead our chapter. I am an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, one of our health system’s assistant chief medical information officers focused on connected health, and an assistant program director for our cardiovascular disease fellowship program.
I first want to thank Doctors Katie Berlacher and Andy Waxler for their incredible leadership of the chapter and its activities over the last three years. Despite the tremendous challenges of the last few years, they have accomplished a great amount on behalf of our patients and members, on a wide variety of important issues, from impactful advocacy work resulting in meaningful practice change, to implementing novel, accessible educational programming for our members, to leading several initiatives focused on promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in cardiology. We are grateful they will be continuing to contribute to the activities of the chapter as members of our PaACC council.
Going forward, through this newsletter, we would like to highlight some fantastic PaACC and ACC activities/initiatives that might be of interest to you.
