SCAI, ACC Return to Individual Scientific Sessions in 2009

April 25, 2008 - The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) will return to the traditional individual meeting formats for both the SCAI Annual Scientific Sessions and i2 Summit in 2009, in response to SCAI members' request for more a intimate meeting.

In 2008, SCAI and ACC partnered to hold the SCAI Annual Scientific Sessions in Partnership with ACCi2 Summit (SCAI-ACCi2), held in conjunction with ACC's Annual Scientific Session in Chicago.

"This year's SCAI-ACCi2 meeting was a strong achievement, particularly in terms of securing increased positive attention for our field,"? said SCAI President Bonnie H. Weiner, M.D. "Yet SCAI's members are enthusiastic about a return to the intimacy of a meeting with a targeted focus on high-level interventional cardiology. We look forward to continuing to look for ways to provide venues to educate both general and interventional cardiology communities so that we may learn from one another and, as always, provide the most optimal care to all cardiology patients."

"The ACC continues to be committed to serving the needs of our interventional members, and we look forward to a successful 2009 ACC i2 Summit that will build upon the success of this meeting over the past three years," said W. Douglas Weaver, president of the ACC. "Our relationship with SCAI remains strong, and we will continue to collaborate on various initiatives including education, guidelines and advocacy."
