President's Message

february 2023

Dear Florida Chapter Members,

Here are a few of the many activities happening in your chapter.

Florida Legislative Session is Gearing Up

The Chapter and our lobbying team are preparing for the Florida House and Senate to get into session, starting in March. We will be tracking bills relevant to cardiology and the practice of medicine and partnering with other organizations to promote cardiovascular health. I will be serving as the “Doctor of the Day” in the Senate, a program that is open to any doctor in the state. If you are interested, details about the program are available here. We will provide more detailed information as the session progresses.

Preceptorship in Spain

Our partnership with the Sociedad EspaƱola de Cardiologia continues this June 11-13. Join us in Madrid for an experience with the culture of Spain, a preceptorship day in a major medical center, and an unparalleled authentic Spanish dinner experience. Applications are available here and we hope you will partake in this unique opportunity for international collaboration.

Volunteer Opportunities in the Chapter

We are always looking for enthusiastic members to join our committees. At the January Board of Directors meeting, two new committees were approved, one for Early Career members and one for our delegation to the Florida Medical Association. As with our other member section committees, the Early Career committee will meet to discuss issues important to this group of members, collaborate with other committees, and report back to the Board. The FMA delegation committee will be responsible for recruiting delegates to attend the FMA meeting and coordinate the delegation’s activities while there. Submit your application here.

Save the Date for the Annual Meeting!

We are returning to Disney’s Grand Floridian resort August 4-6. This year, we are extending the programming into Friday afternoon to accommodate growth in the chapter and so many engaged members interested in additional content. Looking forward to welcoming you home for professional development and family fun. Registration can be found here.
