Mentor Match Award – Mentor2021 Escalator Awards

The Escalator Award has been an amazing opportunity to mentor an inspiring physician such as Dr. Katia Bravo-Jaimes. Through our Women as One initiatives, I have been able to meet and work with many leaders in the field of ACHD as well and have also been able to meet other Women as One mentors and mentees who are also an inspiration.

The webinar lecture series seeks to promote Heart University ACHD virtual modules among Cardiovascular Disease and Pediatric Cardiology Fellows in Training (FIT), to increase interest among general and pediatric cardiology fellows in ACHD through a scholarship program that sponsors participation in an ACHD rotation at a top ACGME-accredited fellowship program, and to increase the number of ACHD applicants in the future years.

The research project seeks to determine if Black and Hispanic adults with coarctation of the aorta presenting for transcatheter coarctation procedures are more likely to have a more severe and late unrepaired presentation and experience higher rate of adverse outcomes compared with non-Hispanic whites.
