The proceeds of the PJ Schafer Memorial Golf Tournament support research at The Johns Hopkins Heart Institute and The Johns Hopkins Ciccarone Center for the Prevention of Heart Disease to fund research into the prevention of sudden cardiac death and premature heart disease. Following the tournament each year a committee of Johns Hopkins cardiologists selects a talented young cardiologist who has recently begun his or her career in one of these areas of cardiovascular research. The 2016 recipient of the PJ Schafer Memorial Research Grant is Dr. Seth Martin, MD and Dr. Bill McEvoy, MD. Dr. Seth Martin is focusing his reaearch on primary and secondary prevention of coronary heart disease. He is interested in individuals with a family history of heart disease and improved strategies for management of cardiovascular risk factors. Dr. Bill McEvoy has a clinical interest in the primary and secondary prevention of heart disease, in both critical care and outpatient care settings.
The Johns Hopkins Heart Institute wants to thank everyone for their generous support of The PJ Schafer Memorial Heart Research Grant.
