The 2010 Fulbright Lecture at UPEI

 Join us for the 2010 Fulbright Lecture at UPEI, featuring Dr. Bobby Khan, physician and investigator at the Atlanta Clinical Research Centers.

Dr. Khan’s lecture, "Cardiometabolic diseases: a growing problem in an ever-shrinking world" is Monday, October 18, 2010 at 7 p.m. in the Alex H. MacKinnon Auditorium (room 242) of Don and Marion McDougall Hall.

Dr.Khan was recently awarded the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship in the Fulbright Senior Specialists Program to work at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada. His topic of focus relates to global health and initiatives including preventive forms of medicine, specifically in the role of cardiovascular health.

Dr. Khan received his BA (with high honors) from Vanderbilt University in 1984 and MD/PhD (with honors) from the University of Tennessee in 1990. He completed his Residency at UCLA Medical Center and Cardiology Fellowship at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.  He has been on the faculty at Emory University since 1997 and is presently a Clinical Professor of Medicine/Cardiology.  He had previously served as director of the Coronary Care Unit and Cardiovascular Research Lab at Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.

Dr.Khan’s interest in clinical research propelled him to establish the Atlanta Vascular Research Foundation and Clinical Research Centers to focus on measures to reduce or reverse inflammation and blockages in the arteries of the heart, diabetes mellitus, hypertension and the cardiometabolic syndrome.

The 2010 Fulbright Lecture at UPEI is made possible by the John and Judy Bragg Family Foundation.
