ACC President Athena Poppas, MD, FACC, discusses how "the ACC's commitment to optimizing global care and outcomes is now more important than ever" as the burden of cardiovascular disease is growing worldwide and will require coordinated efforts across borders, agency, NGOs, and more. Global prevention initiatives are a cost-effective and proven means to reducing cardiovascular mortality. The ACC is proud to work with partners like the World Health Organization, World Heart Federation, NDC Alliance, and others, as well as our U.S. and International Chapters and global cardiovascular societies on a number of prevention activities, including our newly launched ACC #NCDAcademy.
