Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources
At this time in our global history, we are severely challenged by the ongoing COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic while concurrently inspired by how different communities are pulling together at individual, leadership, medical, scientific and public health levels to mitigate this pandemic.
At ABC, we want to remind you of the importance of social distancing and adherence to sanitary measures, especially frequent hand washing with soap for at least 20 seconds and use of hand-sanitizers with appropriate alcohol content as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Since coronavirus infection represents a global pandemic, by definition all populations are affected. However, history has taught us that differential impact often exists tightly linked to socio-demographic factors. Therefore, it is essential that we remain educated about ongoing events. Please find enclosed a brief from the Council on Black Health about
“What Coronavirus Means for Black Communities.“
ABC stands closely with you in support of your safety, well-being and health.Learn more about emerging cardiovascular aspects of the coronavirus pandemic.
ABC Clinical Trials Network
The ABC Clinical Trials Network (ABC CTN), provides investigators from multiple specialities with unparalleled access to clinical studies of interest while offering industry “one-stop” access to multiple investigators that ascribe to the same standard of clinical trial conduct.
Comprised of investigators from a variety of therapeutic areas, the ABC CTN was developed to serve as a central “wheel hub” to identify and vet clinical trial opportunities, match investigators to trials of interest, and provide some of the infrastructure support that physicians say would be beneficial.Find out more

Through the ABC, I have developed significant mentoring relationships with many prominent cardiologists throughout the nation who have helped to broaden my research focus and strengthen my clinical endeavors.
ABC is on the forefront of health equity. Even though I am not a black cardiologist, I feel that the mission and values of the organization are very aligned with my own and the organization is very inclusive.
I was successful in winning the Dr. Jay Brown Best Abstract award. This helped to foster collaborations and mentorship which have been invaluable for a junior attending.
The ABC has helped me to build and maintain professional relationships across numerous specialties in different institutions.
One of the things I like best about ABC is that they actively promote research and collaboration among its members and with other groups/institutions.
