RABAC: RAB and Cardiology

Cardiac disease is as big a problem in developing nations as developed nations, however there is little access to training, education, or resources to address it. With this in mind, RAB commenced our own cardiac teleconferencing program which started in 2023, covering some core topics in cardiology.

Presenters Dr Jordan McGrath: - General Cardiologist and Cardiac Imaging Specialist in Sydney, Australia and Emily Frost - a Radiographer at St George Hospital
