ACC, consulting firm collaborate for cardiovascular care
The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and Gullapalli and Associates (G&A), a consulting firm specializing in the development of collaborative educational strategies for healthcare providers, announced their collaboration to address educational gaps and barriers faced by clinicians in providing cardiovascular care through the development of certified CME initiatives.

One initiative will be a multi-year, multi-modality program to address disparities in healthcare delivery and treatment among patients of multi-ethnic origin with hypertension, diabetes and obesity. Another initiative will address knowledge gaps and lack of guideline adherence among clinicians managing acute coronary syndromes.

Joseph Green, PhD, chief learning officer of the ACC, said it “is critical that healthcare professionals are provided the education and resources necessary to address the unique needs of the multicultural patient.”
