ACC.21 Conference in Atlanta Rescheduled for May
September 2, 2020—The American College of Cardiology (ACC) announced that ACC.21, the 70th annual scientific session that was originally planned for March, has been rescheduled to take place May 15-17, 2021, in Atlanta, Georgia. Registration and call for abstracts will be opening in October.
According to ACC, the conference will feature practice-changing science, cutting-edge education expected, and a robust Expo and Learning Destinations component. The scientific session leaders and staff are also working to ensure a safe environment with the latest health and safety guidelines in place.
Additionally, a virtual ACC.21 experience will allow cardiovascular clinicians who are unable to attend in person to participate in real time with a global audience.
In the announcement, ACC President Athena Poppas, MD, stated, “With continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, our hope is that the new dates will allow more people to attend in person and take advantage of the opportunity to reimagine global heart health, refocus on science, and reconnect with friends and colleagues.”
