Welcome to the Adult Congenital and Pediatric Cardiology Section.

On behalf of the ACPC leadership council, I extend a warm welcome to all our existing and new section members. I am pleased to update you on the exciting initiatives within our section that enhance the value we bring to our members. Our leadership council and workgroup chairs work diligently to ensure that our section initiatives encompassing education, quality, advocacy, diversity and innovation resonate deeply with each of you. In addition, we collaborate with other sections within ACC as well as other societies to better each other's expertise in improving care for patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). In line with our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we have been actively working towards broadening representation within our workgroups and taskforces. We encourage the involvement of trainees and early-career members with an overarching goal of shaping future leaders in our field.

Our commitment to advocacy for our patients and section members remains steadfast under the leadership of Devyani Chowdhury, MBBS, FACC, and Ken Shaffer, MD, FACC. Members of this workgroup are highly engaged with stakeholders within ACC, other professional organizations, and policymakers to work on issues such as prior authorization, healthcare disparities, surgical outcomes, diversity within our workforce and advocacy for targeted funding for CHD-related research. In addition, this workgroup organizes CHD-related activities at the annual ACC Legislative Conference and represents us at the Hill. Read more >>>
