A Letter from the SACS 2022 Chairman
The South Atlantic Cardiovascular Society (SACS) Meeting has brought together cardiovascular specialists from the Southeast and beyond for almost fifty years. Our founders envisioned a meeting where cardiac surgeons and cardiologists will come together to discuss challenging clinical cases and learn from each other in a relaxed environment of learning and dialogue . As cardiovascular healthcare has continued to evolve Advanced Practice Providers from Cardiovascular Teams have been part of our program along with critical care and other related specialties. In 2021 we had our largest SACS meeting ever. Also, 2021 was our first year when we included a section on Adult Congenital Heart Diseases for those interested on this growing population of patients . We will continue to offer SACS-ACHD focus sessions in 2022.
We would like to invite you to participate in our next meeting at Kiawah Island Resort, July 14-17th 2022. The program will be focused on current challenges in cardiovascular care and cardiac surgery. Topics such as structural heart interventions, cardio-oncology , complex coronary artery disease , hypertrophic cardiomyopathy , heart failure and many others will be presented . We will also address relevant issues such as healthcare disparities and will continue with our successful and growing APP Workshop. If you are looking for an interactive meeting where you can learn from others and also share your knowledge and experience and discuss complex clinical cases – SACS is that meeting.
We look forward to seeing you in Kiawah!
