Honorary Fellow of the ASPC Award

History of the Fellow Award:

The American Society for Preventive Cardiology is committed to advancing comprehensive cardiovascular disease prevention and honors those who share in this commitment. Each year, we will identify one individual who has made extraordinary contributions to the field of preventive cardiology through groundbreaking research, exemplary clinical care, and/or excellence in education. The ASPC recognizes this individual for his/her extensive contributions with the designation honorary Fellow of the American Society for Preventive Cardiology (FASPC). We will bestow an honorary FASPC on a select few practitioners who are deemed by the Board of Directors of ASPC to distinguish themselves in all aspects of Preventive Cardiology. This award is presented at the ASPC Congress on CVD Prevention that occurs every July.
