Medical Lecture Series Presents: “Care of the Heart: Blood Pressure, Aspirin, Lipids & Diet (Why All the Confusion?)”

News, Past Lectures
Aren’t we all a little confused about fat in our diet, daily aspirin and what is the new normal for lipids? Then you’ll be interested in this season's final lecture in our Medical Lecture Series by Physician and Professor Dr. James Young of the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio.

Dr. Young, pictured at right, is Professor of Medicine and Executive Dean of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University and Chairman of the Endocrinology and Metabolism Institute. He is also a Physician Director at the Philanthropy Institute and a founder of the Kaufman Center for Heart Failure. He holds the George and Linda Kaufman Chair and was recently appointed Interim Chairman of the Medicine Institute. As Study Chairman of the NIH, FDA, and CMS Interagency Registry for Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (INTERMACS) over the past decade, Dr. Young maintains an active professional role in the fields of heart failure, heart transplants and MCSD development.

Dr. Young has a joint appointment to the Cleveland Clinic’s Multi-Organ Transplant Center and the Heart and Vascular Institute. He is certified as Diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the sub-specialties of Cardiovascular Disease, Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology. He has participated in more than 150 clinical trials as an investigator and has published more than 650 manuscripts and several textbooks.

Professionally, Dr. Young is most proud of his contributions to the development and administration of donor organ procurement programs, his efforts to secure recognition for the sub-specialty of “Heart Failure and Cardiac Transplant Medicine,” his collaborations with basic and clinical scientists, his contributions to a unique medical school curriculum, and the clinical and academic programs he helped develop in Houston and Cleveland.
Please join us to hear a presentation by this very accomplished expert in his field. There will be a cocktail reception to meet Dr. Young following the lecture. The lecture begins at 5 p.m Tuesday, April 5, in the Cultural Center Theatre.
