2015 Cleveland Heart Ball
2015 Research Reception: “State of the Heart – State of the Mind” - Research in Cleveland
The American Heart Association dedicates more monies to research than any other voluntary health organization. Our research programs have contributed to many important scientific advances including the first artificial heart valve, techniques and standards for CPR, implantable pacemakers, treatment for infant respiratory distress syndrome, cholesterol inhibitors, microsurgery and drug-coated stents.The American Heart Association currently has 48 projects being funded in the Cleveland area, totaling $10.2 million. In 2014, 15 new projects were funded, totaling $2.2 million. $5.3 million, equaling 35 projects in meritorous research projects went unfunded due to financial resources.
The reception guests will learn how their dollars help to make a positive impact in our community by touring research labs, meeting current and past American Heart Association funded research scientists and hearing keynote speakers share their cutting edge research discoveries
The 2015 Research Reception will be hosted by University Hospitals.
