UAB physician, nurse practitioner are finalists for awards at Cardiology 2014
Hayden Zaccagni, M.D., UAB assistant professor of pediatric cardiology and critical care medicine, and Ashley Moellinger, nurse practitioner of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, are finalists for major awards at this year’s Cardiology 2014 conference in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The conference, which will be held Feb. 19-23, is a comprehensive postgraduate course for pediatric cardiologists, neonatologists, surgeons, nurses, intensivists, anesthesiologists, sonographers, perfusionists, and all those involved in the care of neonates, children and young adults with cardiovascular disease.
Zaccagni, who joined UAB as a pediatric cardiac critical care medicine fellow in 2012, and subsequently as faculty in 2013, is one of eight finalists for the Outstanding Investigator Award for physicians. He will give an oral presentation on his research involving the use of acetaminophen to reduce lipid peroxidation in children undergoing CPB and its impact on post-CPB kidney injury.
Moellinger, a UAB alumna, is a finalist for the Nursing Scientist Award. She will present her research Postoperative Feeding Protocol Improves Outcomes After Arterial Switch Operation.
Other UAB instructors to present at Cardiology 2014 include Franco Diaz, M.D., pediatric critical care medicine fellow, and Joey Timpa, ECMO coordinator and cardiovascular perfusionist in perioperative services. Their poster presentations were selected from more than 150 abstracts submitted.
