Our Mission is to Promote the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease, including Stroke, in Blacks and other Minorities and to Achieve Health Equity for all through the Elimination of Disparities.

2020 ABC COVID-19 Innovation Awards

The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected African Americans and other racial and ethnic minority groups living in the United States, as well as Blacks worldwide. The Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC) continues its commitment to addressing this toll on minority communities through education, research and advocacy. Improving access to care and thoughtful actions to address this crisis are important to address underlying cardiovascular health disparities that are, in part, rooted in structural discrimination and segregation. In an effort to identify solution-focused mechanisms aimed at mitigating the pandemic’s impact, ABC has established the Association of Black Cardiologists COVID-19 Innovation Awards.

The Heartline Study

The ABC is proud to announce its partnership with HEARTLINE, a randomized, pragmatic, direct-to-participant digital trial sponsored by Johnson & Johnson in collaboration with Apple. The Heartline™ Study is a nationwide heart health research study designed to explore if the Heartline Study app on iPhone and heart health features on Apple Watch can enable earlier detection of an irregular heart rhythm known as atrial fibrillation (AFib), and potentially improve heart health outcomes, including reducing the risk of stroke.

If you’re 65 or older and interested in being a part of the study, visit Heartline.com to learn more and download the app to see if you’re eligible to enroll.

Comprised of investigators from a variety of therapeutic areas, the ABC CRN was developed to serve as a central “wheel hub” to identify and vet clinical trial opportunities, match investigators to trials of inerest, and provide some of the infrastructure support that physicians say would be beneficial.
