Fellows In Training 

WA ACC FIT & Early Career Financial Planning Seminar – April 6, 2023

WA ACC Fellows In Training Jeopardy contestants Alex Taylor, Aris Karatasakis, and Sophia Larson celebrate after their winning competition in ACC Virtual Jeopardy Feb. 27, 2021.

Our team will compete for the national championship in May 2021”


As a fellow-in-training, I have little exposure to non-clinical/research conferences. I was excited to explore the ACC Legislative Conference, and it was an amazing experience to advocate for policies that will not only help our patients as individuals, but also help fund research that matters on a population level. I plan on going again next year, and hope to remain involved!
