The Power of Science and Networking to Change the Course of CVD

Welcome to April! This issue of Cardiology celebrates the incredible success of ACC.23/WCC in New Orleans last month. The energy at the meeting was palpable and the cutting-edge science, education and innovation only served to underscore the power of a community united by a shared mission and vision. Coming out of New Orleans there is no doubt that as a global community we can indeed solve for the growing burden of cardiovascular disease and the need for equitable delivery of care.

Sometimes pictures say more than words and we hope you enjoy a collection of photos capturing some of the biggest highlights and magical moments over the course of the three-day event. Additionally, don't miss a breakdown of some of the hottest Late-Breaking Clinical Trials and Featured Clinical Research. This Month's JACC in a Flash and Journal Wrap sections also feature summaries from some of the most important ACC.23/WCC studies that were simultaneously published across all 10 JACC Journals along with other major medical journals.

Also in this issue, don't miss our feature story looking at women and cardiovascular disease across the spectrum of reproductive health to menopause. According to the article, women's health is increasingly recognized as a unique topic deserving of funding, research and focused management – and we agree. We hope you gain some new insights into this area that can help with management and treatment of this important patient population.

Lastly, don't skip over our regular features like "Pulse of ACC" and "Heart of Health Policy," where we highlight some of the great, collaborative work underway to solve for important issues like health equity, workforce and more. We also recognize former ACC President William A. Zoghbi, MD, MACC, for his generous gift to help fund international cardiovascular research awards – the first of which will be announced at ACC.24 in Atlanta.

As we head into Spring, we hope this issue puts a little "spring" in your step and serves to remind us all that we are part of a truly vibrant and diverse community that is driving change and making a difference. As always, please send your comments and feedback to CardiologyEditor@acc.org. Also, if you have some of your own great photos from ACC.23/WCC, please share on Twitter using #ACC23 and #CardiologyMag and don't forget to tag @ACCinTouch. Until next month!
