Since its inception, the ACC has been at the forefront of progress in cardiovascular care and heart health around the world with a focus on purposeful education, transformation of care, providing value for its members, and improved population health. For more than 60 years the initiatives of the College have had an enormous impact on improving patient care efforts of all health care providers.

In this Fall 2015 edition the CardioSurve Newsletter explores how ACC programs are helping to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through its quality improvement tools and resources, patient support and initiatives via CardioSmart, and mentorship which is helping to shape the cardiologists of tomorrow.
