Remembering Dr. Ralph Sacco

Dr. Ralph Sacco, the first neurologist to serve as president of the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, died Jan. 17. Sacco, a distinguished AHA/ASA volunteer and a revered scientist, served as editor-in-chief of the journal Stroke in addition to other leadership roles. Because of Dr. Sacco’s passion for the AHA and its mission, at his family's request donations in his memory can be made to The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. We have created the Ralph Sacco Memorial Fund for Brain Health in Ralph’s memory.
