During his seven-year tenure at the College, Kevin has been instrumental in a number of novel partnerships with industry and other stakeholders related to clinical data registry development, patient and physician education campaigns, mobile tool development, and much more. In particular, Kevin has played key roles in the creation and implementation of the Diabetes Collaborative Registry and has been involved in the growth and development of ACC’s PINNACLE Registry.
