AHA Council Membership in the CVRI Council has been an important and a fulfilling part of my career. It has provided me a robust network of friends and collaborators in all segments of vascular disease throughout the world. The role of imaging and image-guided intervention is central in so many aspects of cardiovascular and stroke care that the council’s role in education, research, and training is essential. It serves as a manner to identify and collaborate with the brightest mind in our field while serving as a springboard for their work as well as future leaders with Young Investigator Awards and training workshops. The CVRI is a vehicle for many important initiatives that will continue to shape cardiovascular imaging to continue to advance the field and most importantly our patients.
