A Letter From Dr. Sheila Kar

As a practicing cardiologist, what strikes me most is the tremendous shortfall in our community’s level of disease prevention awareness. Heart disease continues to be the leading cause of illness and death, resulting in escalating health care costs and financial devastation to families in the face of our struggling economy. The only way we can ensure a productive and prosperous people is by disease prevention.

My dream is to empower people by making advances in health education for individuals and for the greater populace. The Sheila Kar Health Foundation has been established for just this purpose: nurturing good health practices and disease prevention through education.
