The mission of the Program for the Care and Study of the Aging Heart is:
- To advance the care of older adults with cardiovascular disease by providing personalized cardiovascular care adapted to age-related vulnerabilities.
- To advance the science of cardiovascular aging and age-related cardiovascular conditions by developing, studying, and implementing innovative patient-centered approaches to cardiovascular care.
Dr. Goyal established his Clinical Research Program in 2017. Over the years, the research arm has been supported by grants from the National Institute on Aging, American Heart Association, and the New York Community Trust; and the clinical arm has been supported by funding from the Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation and from private philanthropy. We are grateful to these funding agencies and also to individual donors who have contributed gifts to support our mission. As of 2022, the program formally expanded to the “Program for the Care and Study of the Aging Heart.” We look forward to continued growth over the coming years through continued support from extramural funding and philanthropic contributions.
