Council Awards and Lectures

The AHA scientific council awards acknowledge significant achievements in cardiovascular diseases and stroke, ranging from basic research to service to the councils and the association. These awards recognize the achievements of researchers, scientists, clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals throughout their careers. They also provide opportunities for financial rewards, special presentations and funding to attend Scientific Sessions and other AHA scientific meetings.

CVRI Awards

The Council on Cardiovascular Radiology and Intervention proudly sponsors an early career investigator award and travel grants to the AHA Scientific Sessions for its members as well as a medical student scholarship. Each award acknowledges the outstanding work and research being performed by CVRI Council members and encourages further participation in the AHA and its mission.
