Paul Dudley White - smallDr. Paul Dudley White was President Eisenhower's personal physician. In fact, he guided the president's recovery from a heart attack in 1955. And though lesser known, another of the accomplishments of this forward-thinking physician was his role as a founder of the American Heart Association. Dr. White's vision spurred the association's emergence as a world-renowned leader in heart research and education.

To recognize his distinguished achievements and honor those who share his vision, the American Heart Association has formed the Paul Dudley White Legacy Society.

Members of the society enjoy:
  • A distinctive pin to show their commitment to the association.
  • Our certificate of appreciation and recognition.
  • An alliance with others who share their compassionate vision for improving the health for their families and friends.
To become a member, please contact us and let us know that you have made an estate gift to the American Heart Association.
