Join the CVTeam each month 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.
As we dream of warmer weather…this month’s pairings are taking us there! These wines are typically available at the Fine Wine and Spirits stores located around the Commonwealth.
For those who like a white...
Josh, Cellars Rose
The winemaker notes, "The nose is bright with aromas of fresh strawberries, white flowers and stone fruits.” We suggest pairing this with goat cheese or a dinner that includes seafood - grilled or lightly pan seared.
For our red lovers…
Georges Duboeuf Merlot Pays d’Oc
We chose this because reviews give it a touch of sweetness at the end note and spring and summer are a ‘sweet’ time of year. If you are searching for a cheese try a blue cheese; for dinner a classic chicken dish pairs well.
For our mocktail of the month - try Blood orange and ginger soda - that will go well with Asian take-out of all types or a creamy cheese such as brie on oat crackers.

Evaluation of Mavacamten in Symptomatic Patients with Nonobstructive Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
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.
