Message from the Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health
Council Chair

Jean-Pierre Després, PhD, FAHA, FIAS

Jean-Pierre Després, PhD, FAHA, FIASThe Council on Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health is focused on nutrition, physical activity, obesity, diabetes, and the behaviors related to these conditions and how they contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases.


The leadership committee welcomes volunteers to contribute their time and expertise to the work of the council and the AHA goals. We encourage you to become a member of the council and to work with us in developing our science in these key areas to prevent cardiovascular disease. We are particularly interested in having junior investigators bring their new ideas and share their energy with the council. In this last year, we’ve had many exciting opportunities within our council, such as our official name change in October 2013 from the Council on Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism to our new name, the Council on Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health. We’ve added two new abstract awards: the Award for Excellence in Research Addressing Cardiovascular Health Equity and the New Investigator Travel Award, in addition to adding new criteria for the Mark Bieber Award. I urge all members to get involved by completing the Volunteer Online Form!
