Pediatric cardiologist receives American Heart Association award

Last week at our Scientific Sessions in Orlando, the AHA presented one of our highest honors, the Eugene Braunwald Academic Mentorship Award, to pediatric cardiologist James H. Moller, M.D., of the University of Minnesota. The award lauded Moller "for his highly successful guidance of promising young physicians and academicians during a career that combined great personal achievement with intense devotion to the professional development of his many trainees."

Dr. Moller, a former President of the American Heart Association, is a widely recognized authority on congenital heart defects in children. He has also put his mark on young physicians and scientists in his home state, by working with the AHA to start a scholarship program that bears his name for Minnesota students in the health sciences.
