The American College of Cardiology (ACC) was founded in 1949 by a group of 13 cardiologists to combat the increase in heart disease and lead the charge in cardiovascular research following World War II. The college now boasts over 52,000 members from all over the world with a mission to “transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health.”
On the ACC’s website, users can find detailed information about clinical topics and the latest in cardiology in the form of articles, publications, and even podcasts. Other tabs include “Education and Meetings” where you can find educational resources, guidelines, and more. Finally, there is a “Tools and Practice Support” tab that features toolkits, apps, and other resources designed for patients and doctors at the point of care.
