Welcome to your ACC Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease Section!

This Section evolved from the original ACC Prevention Committee in March of 2014 as it became clear that CVD prevention, both nationally and globally, is an important priority of the American College of Cardiology. The goal of this Section is to serve as a point of identification and a forum for ACC members with an interest in the broad range of issues in CVD prevention. The ACC membership includes numerous experts in CVD risk assessment, management of hyperlipidemia, control of hypertension and diabetes, genetics and epigenetics of CVD risk factors, tobacco cessation, biomarkers of CVD risk, thrombosis and hemostasis, healthcare disparities, as well as other areas impacting CVD risk reduction. As the Chair of the Section, I welcome any and all of our ACC members to join and contribute to the important work of this Section!
