Fellow colleagues, residents, and students,

Welcome to your ACC FIT Advocacy Work Group! We serve as a platform for you to support the ACC's mission to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health by engaging in ACC's advocacy programs and supporting ACCPAC.

The goal of this group is to educate, engage and mobilize you towards participation in the ACC's advocacy programs, including ACCPAC. Here you will find advocacy resources and links, how-to guides, articles written by your colleagues, and information on how to get involved in Advocacy within the College.
