These two dedicated SCAN members worked tirelessly with our CV Health subunit director, Geeta Sikand, on reaching out to the American College of Cardiology (Penny is Academy's liaison to ACC) and the American Heart Association (Linda is Academy's liaison to AHA) to gain the support of these important organizations for the 2020 MNT Act. Penny and Linda serve on the SCAN Cardiovascular Health Subunit Rapid Response Team. On behalf of SCAN CV Health Subunit they have responded on various cardiovascular health policy issues including the recent Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee Report (Penny) and the Blood Pressure Screening in Adults Report by US Preventive Services Task Report (Linda).
