SCAI was on Capitol Hill this week, hosting an educational program that drew a diverse audience of approximately 100 attendees, including House of Representatives staff, physicians and other health care providers, patients, and other members of the public. The latest in SCAI’s series of Know What Counts regional education programs was directed by SCAI Trustee Mark Turco, M.D., FSCAI, and cosponsored by the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC), Mended Hearts, and WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. The event assembled an esteemed group of speakers, including U.S. Senator Benjamin Cardin (D-MD), to examine racial, ethnic, and gender disparities in health care and discuss how to address these issues.
