ACC's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity is not just an issue for cardiologists, it is an issue for quality patient care, which is why the ACC is committed to improving diversity and inclusion in the practice of cardiology, and at the College.

The College's vision is to harness the power of the diversity of its members to advance patient care, spur innovation and improve health equity among individual patients and populations.

In doing so, the ACC will ensure opportunity for all cardiovascular providers by working towards a fully inclusive organization and profession.
