Hello Virginia ACC Colleagues,
I hope this message finds you well.
ACC.22 Scientific Sessions - It was great to get back to in-person ACC meetings in Washington, DC. I’m glad many of us could connect at the Virginia Chapter social hour. It was an excellent meeting, filled with participation from fellow Virginia members. Remember to mark your calendars for next year for ACC.23 in New Orleans taking place March 4-6.
We want to congratulate our colleagues who were recognized as new fellows (FACC) and associates (AACC) of the American College of Cardiology!
