Robert Levy Memorial Lecture

Sponsored by the Council on Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health

The lectureship was established in 2001 in memory of your esteemed colleague and AHA volunteer, Dr. Robert I. Levy. Dr. Levy graduated with highest honors from Cornell University and cum laude from Yale University School of Medicine. His distinguished career is highlighted by numerous prominent appointments, such as, Director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, Vice President for Health Sciences at Tufts University, Vice President for Health Sciences at Columbia University, President of Sandoz Research Institute and President of Wyeth-Ayerst Research. His connection to the American Heart Association dates back to the early 1970s as a member of the Executive Committee of the AHA Council on Basic Science and extends to the mid-1990s as Chairman of the AHA Pharmaceutical Roundtable.
