Heart Walk Talk

This is Sun’s 3rd year as a Silicon Valley Heart Walk sponsor. The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. The Heart Walk is a volunteer activity to promote health and raise funds
to support heart research and education.

We kicked off our 2009 Heart Walk preparation today with a lunchtime talk at Sun Labs called “Secrets to a Long and Healthy Life” by the remarkable Neal Scott, MD, PhD. (Dr. Scott’s presentation is linked here with his permission. Note that it is 123 pages long, in PDF format.) About Dr. Scott:

Dr. Neal Scott received his Bachelor of Science from Stanford University, his M.D. from Harvard Medical School and his Ph.D. degree from MIT. He completed an Internal Medicine residency and a research fellowship at the University of California, San Diego. Following a Cardiology fellowship at Stanford University and an advanced fellowship in Coronary Intervention at Emory University, he joined the academic faculty at Emory University. There, Dr. Scott taught and worked in the cardiac catheterization laboratory, developed various therapeutic catheters and performed basic and clinical research. In addition, he started a medical device company that was acquired by Medtronic, Inc. Dr. Scott has over 100 publications and over 20 patents issued or pending.
