CVTeam December Newsletter

Hello Members of the PaACC CV Team!

My name is Elaine Strohl and I am your Cardiovascular Team Liaison for Eastern Pennsylvania. Together with Karen Tarolli, our CVT Liaison for Western Pennsylvania, I would like to wish you holiday greetings. After a long nine plus months in this pandemic, I hope this newsletter finds you well. It has been a crazy year of many firsts! Here at the Pennsylvania chapter of the ACC we are missing the opportunity to connect with one another in-person. But we are adapting to this changed environment and we want you to be a part of our future. We have some exciting events planned for 2021!

      • Starting in January 2021 we will kick off our Journal Club. Each month will feature a different speaker with a new topic on an important journal article. And since we used to have these in person we’ll attempt to recreate the atmosphere and suggest a cheese and beverage pairing to match the topic of the month - wine, cheese and heart disease. Connect with us virtually in a more casual environment – at HOME! Grab your refreshments and join our Zoom discussion the third Wednesday of each month. Watch your email for information on how to register for these one-hour meetings. We have applied for CEU for each session.
      • Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 20 when we will launch our first PaACC CVT Virtual Conference focused on hot topics in cardiology. The conference will offer two hours of LIVE sessions. Each topic will combine 45 minutes of presentation with 15 minutes of LIVE panel discussion. This will be followed by two hours of ON-DEMAND content that can be viewed at any time. This is designed to be a highly interactive forum to keep your attention and get you updated on the latest information in cardiology. Registration for this low-cost conference will start in early 2021. We have applied for CEU for both the live and on-demand content.
      • We will improve communication within the PaACC using this bi-monthly newsletter and our website: Pennsylvania Chapter, American College of Cardiology - HOME (

Thank you for all the hard work that you have done in 2020! We know the days can be long and seem thankless at times. But we also must remember the many lives we have improved through our efforts. Check out our Humans in Cardiology page to remind yourself of the human side of working in medicine.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and all the best in the start of a NEW YEAR. I am hopeful that 2021 will bring about much positive change in our world! Come with us on this journey.

“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
