CVRI Message from the Chair

Jill E. Jacobs, MD, FAHA, FACR

Jill E. Jacobs, MD FAHA FACR

I am proud to be a long-standing member of the Council on Cardiovascular Radiology and Intervention (CVRI) as it supports the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Stroke Association missions of reducing death and disability from cardiovascular, peripheral vascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The CVRI Council members further these missions by providing outstanding research, education, outreach, and mentorship in the fields of cardiovascular imaging and image-guided intervention. Membership in the CVRI Council is enriched by the robust collection of friends and collaborators that comprise this great imaging and intervention network and the associated Councils of the AHA. Together, we will continue to strive to accomplish the many initiatives of the AHA that advance the fields of cardiovascular imaging and intervention and to build healthier lives for our patients, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
