The American Heart Association presented one of its highest honors, the Eugene Braunwald Academic Mentorship Award, to time-honored medical epidemiologist Jeremiah Stamler, M.D., of Northwestern University in Chicago at the Nov. Scientific Sessions.
As a result of the Illinois Stroke Law, patients who suffer a stroke will be assured of getting the highest level of stroke care available in their area, whether they’re in downtown Chicago, rural Pope county, or on the side of a freeway anywhere in between.
The American Heart Association recognized its “Heart of Chicago” companies, sponsors who support the Association’s mission at the highest level in Metro Chicago - Advocate Health Care, University of Chicago Medicine and Walgreens.
