December 11, 2015 (New York, NY)--  It was a festive evening in the midst of the holiday season as the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF)  honored Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, the iconic former Secretary of State and the U.S. National Security Advisor,

on December 11, 2015, at  the Plaza Hotel in New York. 

One of the world’s most accomplished and respected

public servants, Dr. Kissinger has affected much of the

history of the last half century through his work as an

eminent scholar, foreign policy advisor and prolific

author.  Leaders from the global cardiovascular

community paid tribute to his countless

accomplishments, as they also celebrated the

latest innovations in cardiovascular research. 

For over 25 years, the Cardiovascular Research

Foundation has advanced the understanding and

treatment of cardiovascular disease.  CRF serves as a

catalyst to bring together the extraordinary talents and leadership of the international cardiology community for a common purpose: to help doctors improve the survival and quality of life for people suffering from heart disease.  This year’s Pulse Gala also honored the career and accomplishments of Dr. Roman W. DeSanctis, a preeminent leader in clinical cardiology for the past half century.
