To the Finish Line and Back

April 22, 2020

This issue of De Motu Cordis explores the value of partnerships and shared discoveries. Like many physicians, my family history of cardiovascular disease played a role in my decision to study medicine and has motivated me to focus on cardiovascular diseases. Although we have made significant progress since I finished medical school, access to outstanding evidence-based health care for all remains an unmet need. I am fortunate to work with faculty and staff who are committed to population health and community care. Our cardiovascular disease support groups and other comprehensive clinical and research programs are expanding opportunities for patients to live longer, healthier lives. While we have made much progress in combating cardiovascular diseases, better implementation of proven therapeutic strategies and continued innovation and discovery remains critical.

I hope you will join me and take steps to support your community during the 2020 Virtual Greater New Haven Heart Walk on Saturday, May 2, 2020.

There are two ways you can to contribute:

1. Register. Join the “Yale Cardiovascular Medicine” team.

2. Give. Donate to a team or the 2020 Greater New Haven Heart Walk.

Together we will work to hopefully prevent or mitigate cardiovascular disease and invest in healthier, more vibrant communities.
