What is the Innovation Forum?
The Innovation Forum is a bimonthly virtual event hosted by Section Chair David Cho, MD, MBA. Each forum will focus on a specific area of innovation in cardiology and provide an interactive and dynamic exchange between key opinion leaders, innovation experts, clinicians, researchers, and technology stakeholders.
Our goal is to create an open discussion from a wide breadth of expertise centered around digital health, medical devices, artificial intelligence, precision medicine, and entrepreneurship. We hope to lead the creation of value for our members through actionable insights into clinical applicability in patient care. The Innovation Forum is open to all ACC members and invited non-member guests.
