The Global Prevention Prize was created by U.S. Preventive Medicine to recognize and honor an individual who has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to prevention and its role in helping America and the world overcome paramount health care concerns. Additionally, this award seeks to acknowledge primary, secondary, or tertiary prevention achievements that improve the quality and longevity of individuals and groups, as well as help advance a culture of prevention. The award is presented at the annual National Health Science Summit, which is sponsored by U.S. Preventive Medicine and organized by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

"I am honored to receive the Global Prevention Prize and grateful to U.S. Preventive Medicine for such recognition," stated Dr. Fuster. "Mount Sinai Heart's efforts are broad and deep. Our laboratories and clinical facilities are bustling with investigation, patient evaluation, and treatments that bring patients the best modern science offers in the area of cardiac care. Some of our most exciting initiatives involve community service on distant shores and in distant venues. Cardiovascular disease is an international health priority, and I am proud that Mount Sinai Heart is playing a leading role in tackling this epidemic."

"It is a privilege to honor Dr. Fuster with this inaugural award designed to recognize those whose tireless efforts are making prevention a priority in overcoming global health care concerns," stated Christopher Fey, Chairman and CEO of U.S. Preventive Medicine. "Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer throughout the world. In the United States alone, the cost of treating cardiovascular disease doubled from approximately $150 billion a decade ago to about $300 billion in 2005. This trend will continue unless and until aggressive action is taken to prevent heart disease and promote healthy living. Prevention projects overseen by Dr. Fuster are making significant strides in educating and modifying behaviors in Africa, Colombia, Grenada, Spain, and the United States."

The first annual National Health Science Summit serves as a critical forum for 250 world-leading scientists, top journalists, health policy experts and executives to discuss trends in drug discovery and innovation, healthcare policy and legislation, and explore the frontiers of science, the breakthrough therapies and the implications for global health. Additional awards were presented by notable guests, including former NBA star Earvin "Magic" Johnson.
