September 29, 2021 marks World Heart Day – an annual international day of awareness set forth by the World Heart Federation and World Health Organization to increase awareness of cardiovascular diseases and the work to combat their negative global impact.
This year’s World Heart Day is focused around three pillars: equity, prevention and community.
ACC is appreciative of its more than 54,000 members from 142 countries, including you, its ACC leadership team, who all work to achieve our Vision of a world where innovation and knowledge optimize cardiovascular care and outcomes. On this World Heart Day, thank you for your commitment to our Mission to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health.
The College has communications planned throughout the day on social media channels and in newsletters, including reminders to our followers of our breadth of resources, including:

- Global Hub (www.acc.org/globalhub)
