I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and is ready for a fabulous academic year. As we get back to reality, here are some exciting things that have been happening as a result of the Advocacy, the ACC, and the PAC (Political Action Committee) while we all were relaxing at the beach.
As part of the 2019 MACCS Meeting at Heart House, the MDACC/VCACC are excited to hold a case competition exclusively for CVTeam members.
Do you have a tough or quirky case that would be fascinating to share with your colleagues? You will walk through the clinically pertinent events of your case, present treatment options and then reveal the results at MACCS as one of the CME/CNE sessions. The on-line submission site is open now. You will briefly outline the case online and if chosen to present, create a PowerPoint presentation for 5-6 minutes. The top three presenters will win Visa Gift cards. Plan to come to MACCS on Sunday, November 24th also for day of education, networking and learning.
You can also join us Saturday, November 23rd for CVTeam Networking event at the Fairmount Hotel Lobby/Lounge, Washington, DC.
Become a member! Benefit from late breaking clinical ACC updates networking events, conference discounts and much more.

MDACC CVT Team Networking Event October 10, 2019, 6-8 pm at the Hotel Indigo, 24 West Franklin Street in Historic Mount Vernon, Baltimore. Join us for hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and networking. Please bring a colleague/friend.
ACC Legislative Conference November 3-5, 2019: Consider joining us on Capitol Hill where we meet with legislators and advocate for our patients and the profession. Advocacy is powerful with the help of colleagues and the PAC. Having CVTeam members at the table is important. Legislators want to hear what we think. It truly is an amazing experience.
