We are excited to offer travel scholarship opportunities to support two Fellows in Training to attend the ACC Legislative Conference to be held October 15-17, 2023 in Washington DC.
This conference provides an opportunity to gain a first-hand perspective on the legislative issues that impact cardiovascular professionals and patients and includes a visit to Capitol Hill to confer with area Members of Congress.
