Spotlight on Iowa Women in Cardiology and Spotlight on Cardiology Practices

We plan to start a new series with a "Spotlight on Iowa Women in Cardiology" and a "Spotlight on a Cardiology Practice" periodically. Please respond with your interest to Dr. Ashwath ( or Autumn ( ) if you wish to be considered for this.

The Women in Cardiology Section of the ACC offers women cardiologists opportunities to strengthen their professional support system and skills through networking events, professional development and mentoring programs. In addition, membership and active involvement in the Section provides a training ground for developing leadership skills and understanding the governance structure and avenues to leadership within the College.

We are excited to start the Iowa ACC Women In Cardiology (WIC) Council, chaired by Dr. Mahi Ashwath. We are looking for additional members to engage the community in a virtual manner. We have had activities through live events (pre COVID-19) with high school students - which has been very well received along with zoom events more recently. We are also partnering with other Midwest Chapters and have been involved with National ACC WIC in our efforts to increase the role of Women in Cardiology.

We are looking for active members who can involve the local community - medical students and high school students - to increase awareness and interest in cardiology.

If you would be interested in joining the leadership team of the WIC-Iowa Chapter, please respond to Dr. Mahi Ashwath or Autumn McGill with your interest.
