New York Academy of Medicine Recognizes Two ACC Members
Valentín Fuster, MD, PhD, MACC, editor in chief of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, was recently recognized by the New York Academy of Medicine as this year’s Urban Health Champion for his dedication and leadership in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. According to the President of the New York Academy of Medicine Jo Ivey Boufford, MD, “Dr. Fuster is a leader in the ongoing revolution in clinical and scientific research in cardiovascular disease, and this has led to his passion for prevention at the clinical and policy level worldwide.” The Academy also recently named Parag Goyal, MD, a member of ACC’s Geriatric Section Leadership Council, as the recipient of the prestigious 2016 – 2017 Glorney-Raisbeck Fellowship Award in Cardiovascular Diseases for his research project, “Patient-Identified Contributors to Readmission Among Older Adults with Heart Failure (HF).” The award is a one-year, $70,000 grant awarded in support of research projects seeking better understanding of the causes, prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and that will advance the academic careers of young physician investigators. Goyal’s research project will address gaps in knowledge related to underappreciated contributors to 30-day hospital readmissions in older adults with HF.
