Speakers

Namratha Kandula, MD, MPH
Professor of Medicine and Preventive Medicine @Northwestern University
Dr. Namratha Kandula is Professor of Medicine and Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University, co-Director of the Center for Community Health, and a primary care physician. She conducts epidemiologic studies and pragmatic community trials, and leads a multisector partnership that is implementing and testing evidence-based interventions (EBIs) to reduce cardiovascular disparities. The past 50 years have yielded tremendous insights into the pathophysiology, prevention and treatment of CVD. However, these breakthroughs are not being equitably disseminated or implemented for vulnerable, high-burden populations. Well-designed and optimally executed dissemination and implementation studies that engage communities from the beginning will be critical for translation of scientific breakthroughs to real world populations. Dr. Kandula will describe her research to understand the drivers of CVD disparities and cardiovascular health promotion in the South Asian American community.
Ami Bhatt, MD
Director, Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program and Director, Outpatient Cardiology @Massachusetts General Hospital
Dr. Bhatt is the Director of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program and Director of Cardiology Outpatient Services at Massachusetts General Hospital. She is an active clinical cardiologist, investigator and educator. She is leading efforts in implementing digital health and telemedicine to improve access to cardiovascular care, including prenatal care, nutrition and exercise education, and focusing on the social determinants of cardiovascular health in multiethnic populations. Her efforts incorporate educating middle school and high school students about cardiac care. When she’s not busy innovating, she spends time with her husband and two daughters, having dance parties and traveling.
