"Ms. Scheller's commitment to improving healthcare spans more than 25 years. Her professional and personal dedication to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease has been a driving force in improving patient care," commented Alexandra J. Lansky, MD, Director of the Women's Heart Health Initiative at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF). "At CRF we have been focused on research and education for all types of cardiovascular disease (CVD). One of the objectives of our Women's Heart Health Initiative is to develop educational programs for women on the prevalence of CVD and enlighten them as to the effectiveness of various therapies. This Momentum Women event is an excellent venue for relaying cardiovascular information to other like-minded women dedicated to enhancing their health as well as their careers."
"This fete for Pat is very timely, coming at the beginning of spring, a time of new beginnings and new awareness. Acknowledging Pat and her dedication to developing technologies that reduce deaths from heart attacks will raise awareness of cardiovascular disease, particularly in women, among the Momentum Women membership and community. After all, cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women," stated Ceslie Armstrong, editor-in chief of CESLIE - The Women's Network(TM), "and we are constantly programming information for our audience of women about prevention and care."
Pat's professional achievements include pioneering work in developing the markets for such groundbreaking new technologies as coronary stents and coronary diagnostic screening tests, such as hsCRP. Throughout her career she has been guided by her personal mission of improving the health and well being of the community and eliminating the suffering caused by cardiovascular disease. The Momentum Women are proud to honor Ms. Scheller, and eager to hear her insights.
