U.S. Preventive Medicine(R) Awards Inaugural Global Prevention Prize to Dr. Valentin Fuster of Mount Sinai Heart
Date:11/7/2008

ard 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.
