As a global advocate of cardiovascular health, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) seeks to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health worldwide.
The ACC can assist with global advocacy efforts in reducing the burden of chronic diseases through our 38 international chapters, our U.S. Board of Governors, and through outreach to the U.S. government on global policy priorities.
In an increasingly connected world, interorganizational collaboration is vital to solve global problems and to successfully address the challenge of promoting global cardiovascular health in the 21st century. With 52,000 global members who counsel and treat patients every day, the ACC remains steadfastly committed to achieving this goal in collaboration with like-minded partners worldwide.
