Congratulations to Dr Robert Carey who will be receiving the American Heart Association (AHA) Distinguished Scientist Award for 2020. The award is the highest award given by the AHA in science and the Distinguished Scientist designation honors for AHA professional members who have made extraordinary contributions to cardiovascular and stroke research. The Award will be presented in November at AHA Scientific Sessions in Dallas or virtually, whichever option is selected.
This is one of many lifetime achievement awards for Bob, but this one is particularly important as we believe this is the first time an ENDOCRINOLOGIST is receiving a CARDIOLOGY lifetime achievement award!
Following are just a few quotes from the nomination letters submitted to the American Heart Association supporting Dr Carey for this distinguished scientist award:
“Bob is an outstanding researcher, educator, mentor, leader, role model and advocate for the AHA.”
“Bob has devoted his life to biomedical research in hypertension but has coupled this with exceptional contributions in many other facets of academic medicine and contributions to several professional societies, including the AHA. His contributions to furthering our understanding of hormonal control of blood pressure and hypertension are widely recognized. He is an exceptional individual and role model, who in my opinion is highly deserving of the AHA Distinguished Scientist Award.”
Again, congratulations Dr Carey, well done!
