Yale Medicine-affiliated Sandip Mukherjee, MD, FACC, will share new observations and treatment strategies for reducing heart disease, the most common cause of death in the U.S., and how lowering your cholesterol, controlling diabetes, and addressing obesity can contribute to a long, healthy life. Dr. Mukherjee will also review lessons learned from the world’s “Blue Zones” – places where people live the longest and are healthiest.

Harris Award, the Betsy Winters House Staff Award, the Hugh L. Dwyer Award, and the Stephen R. Shell Award.

Megan Frankel, Healthnetwork president, will present the benefits of the Healthnetwork and how to become a member of the nonprofit organization that connects members with top hospitals and doctors to provide fast access to world-class care and increase philanthropic funding for medical research. Major donors to the Boca Grande Health Clinic Foundation are afforded access to Healthnetwork Foundation and its network of top hospitals across the country.
