From Our Faculty

My unique areas of interest all source from personal experiences. My own family has been affected by heart disease and many patients have left long-lasting impressions that have shaped my interests. My experiences as a national leader of the American Heart Association brought me up to speed regarding the true burden of heart disease and stroke in this country. It’s a simple analysis – we must become better at preventing disease. Period.Clyde W Yancy, MD
