ACC Names Next CV Team Lead For ACC.24 and ACC.25

Kimberly (Kim) Guibone, DNP, ACNP-BC, FACC

Kimberly (Kim) Guibone, DNP, ACNP-BC, FACC, has been selected as the ACC's Annual Scientific Session Cardiovascular (CV) Team Lead for ACC.24 and ACC.25. Guibone, who is currently the Structural Heart Coordinator and Clinical Program Manager at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, brings 20 years of experience as a cardiology/cardiac surgery nurse practitioner, and a combined 32 years of acute care nursing experience to her role.

"I am looking forward to contributing to the ongoing success of the ACC Annual Scientific Session and engaging CV Team members as valued contributors and partners in transforming cardiovascular care," says Guibone. "The CV Team is a vital resource of expertise, heart team best practice, and advocacy for diversity, inclusion and access to care globally."

In addition to her decades of clinical work, Guibone has been published in leading medical journals and been involved in numerous aspects of ACC's Annual Scientific Session since 2017, serving as an abstract reviewer and/or a member of the program committee. She is also a member of the ACC's Lifelong Learning Oversight Committee, the ACC CV Team Member Section and the STS/ACC TVT Registry Steering Subcommittee.

"Since 2022, when Jane Linderbaum, MS, ARNP, FACC, joined the ACC Annual Scientific Session Planning Committee as the inaugural CV Team Lead, there has been a profound focus on incorporating interdisciplinary education throughout the meeting," said Douglas Drachman, MD, FACC, ACC Annual Scientific Session Chair. "With the selection of Kim Guibone as lead for ACC.24 and ACC.25, we anticipate that this focus – and the engagement of ACC's cardiovascular team members – will continue to develop and deepen. The future of cardiovascular team member engagement in ACC's annual meeting is incredibly exciting!"
