On January 23rd, 2020 the Connecticut Chapter of the American College of Cardiology sponsored the second event of the year for the Women in Cardiology section.
Trainees and faculty from across the state of Connecticut came together at Gouveia Vineyards in Wallingford to sample local wines paired with a local specialty, New Haven pizza!
The night was an opportunity to meet and connect with colleagues from around the state and also to highlight a really exciting Spring agenda for our group.
