The Kentucky Chapter the ACC (KY-ACC) is dedicated to promoting excellence in cardiovascular care, and heart health in commonwealth of Kentucky. The highlight of the year for the Chapter, as well as for all the Fellows in Training (FITs), is our annual meeting, which was held in Lexington, Kentucky at the Lexington Convention Center this past year. Our state Chapter meeting has seen a steady increase in participation, and last year’s meeting set a record for attendance from both practicing cardiologists and FITs with nearly 300 attendees.

The Missouri Chapter leadership is very encouraging of FITs to get involved in the Chapter’s proceedings. Here are some examples of how to get involved:
