This year, I am proud to join leaders across the Denver metro area as a member of the 2021 Physicians with Heart campaign. While this will be my first experience with the American Heart Association’s Heart Challenge campaign, this is not my first experience with the American Heart Association. In fact, my relationship with the AHA is long-standing and broad starting in 1995 when the AHA helped my career take off when they funded one of my research projects. Over the past 25 years, my why has grown due to their work in researching & training our communities in CPR, prioritizing children’s health, and fight against e-cigarette & tobacco usage. In addition to all of these wonderful impact areas, I also have a personal connection and strive every day to live a heart-healthy life.
All of these are reasons why I am supporting the American Heart Association this year by joining dozens of other leaders across our community to not only raise lifesaving funds but also awareness for our world’s number cause of death – heart disease. I would love for you to join me this year – you can join my team or make a donation of any amount. Thank you!
