CVTeam Journal Club

journal club banner

Join the CVTeam as we hear from one of our own CVTeam leaders about a study that will help you in the evaluation and care of patients. After a review of the article we will use the Zoom breakouts to form small groups so we can have the valuable back and forth discussion that translates science into action in clinic. See the articles below that will be discussed. Although there is no charge for this event for members, we do ask that you register for each session you are able to attend so we can send you the Zoom link 24 hours prior to the meeting and properly add you to a discussion group. Please note: an application has been submitted for CEUs for each session and you must register for each session separately per CEU rules. Click here to view CEU Information.

Beverage Pairing

For our last Journal Club of the 2021-2022 season we will be toasting with Prosecco! This sparkling Italian white is produced in Veneto and Friuli Venezia Giulia over nine separate regions and is a dry white, yet tastes sweeter than a typical French Champagne. Traditionally suggested pairings are seafood and cured meats (salami, prosciutto) but for the adventurous you may want to take a hint from Asia and add some spice. Curries for a main dish or a mix of spicy trail mix would be delightful! For those joining us on the non-alcoholic side, a good ginger ale will go well with the Asian spice and also look just as lovely in a glass - bubbly for all!

In the before times, there were several Journal Clubs around the Commonwealth that met in restaurants for dinner and discussion several time a year. Gathering for information and camaraderie were equally important because there is nothing like relaxing with colleagues to get into debates and real world examples.

To add a bit of levity to this club we will be suggesting some beverage pairings; will you join the call with the suggested wine and cheese? or maybe you will have a sparkly non-alcoholic beverage with a take-out meal! We will make the suggestions and you can show off in your small group.

Making this a place for discussion and getting to know each other over zoom via food and tasting might just make this slightly reminiscent of how we used to operate.

Thank you to our previous Journal Club Speakers
