Kim Eagle Named Editor of ACC.org
The ACC has named Kim A. Eagle, MD, MACC, as the editor of ACC.org. Eagle has served on the editorial board of CardioSource.org, the College’s web portal, for the past six years as an associate editor of the Journal Scan feature. He will take the helm of ACC.org, the College’s revamped web platform which will launch later this year.
“I am extremely pleased to assume the role of editor of ACC.org,” said Eagle. “Our users can look forward to the launch of a new user platform this fall which enhances ease of access, personalization, and expansion of content delivery to meet the demands of an ever changing landscape in cardiovascular care.”
Eagle is the Albion Walter Hewlett Professor of Internal Medicine and director of the Frankel Cardiovascular Center at the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor, MI. He graduated from Oregon State University in 1976 and from Tufts University Medical School in 1979. He completed his residency and chief residency in Internal Medicine at Yale-New Haven Hospital from 1979 to 1983 followed by research and clinical fellowships in cardiology and health services research at Harvard Medical School and The Massachusetts General Hospital from 1983 through 1986.
He has served on numerous ACC Task Forces and Committees and has been a member of the Guideline Task Force, chair of the Task Force for the Development of Performance Measures in Cardiovascular Care, a member of the Annual Scientific Session Program Committee, and served on the College’s Board of Trustees from 2001-2005. He also served on the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's External Advisory Committee from 2002-2006, and was named study chair of its Genetic Causes of Aortic Disease initiative in 2006.
“The College is extremely grateful to Dr. Eagle for agreeing to serve as the editor of ACC.org,” said Patrick T. O’Gara, MD, FACC, president of the ACC. “Dr. Eagle brings a unique blend of talents and experience to the position that will enable us to achieve our vision for the myriad ways that ACC.org will serve our members and the entire cardiovascular community. As a master clinician/educator, investigator, health advocate and mentor, Dr. Eagle will provide unique insights and foster a culture of continued digital innovation across ACC. We look forward to working with him, the editorial team and staff in this new role.”
