New ACC Video Showcases Stories of Leadership in Cardiology

Leaders from across the cardiovascular care team share their paths to leadership in a new ACC video. The video captures stories from a diverse array of ACC members, including ACC President Mary Norine Walsh, MD, FACC, and Vice President C. Michael Valentine, MD, FACC, as well as up-and-coming leaders, including Board of Governors member Laxmi Mehta, MD, FACC; and Travis Batts, MD, FACC, from ACC’s Leadership Academy Cohort II. The stories these leaders share illustrate the importance of seeking opportunities to lead under ACC’s new governance structure, which supports centralized authority and decentralized decision-making, finding mentors and providing mentorship, and maintaining a focus on the College’s mission to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health.
