ACC’s 26th Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, DC, in September offered a packed schedule of fast-paced, immersive educational sessions for the nearly 400 attendees from across the entire spectrum of the cardiovascular care team.

The action started with an address by ACC President Mary Norine Walsh, MD, FACC, who mapped out the foundation for the College’s advocacy strategy. A highlight of the conference was an invigorating discussion with Francis Collins, MD, PhD, director of the National Institutes of Health, on the future of government funded research. On the second day of the conference, ACC members paid visits to nearly 300 senators and representatives to ensure the voice of cardiology was heard loud and clear.
