Holy Spirit Lecture Series Tackles Healthcare Reform

Published August 20, 2009

The lecturer will be Dr. Nicolas A.F. Chronos, president and chief executive officer of Saint Joseph Hospital’s Center for Translational Research.

Healthcare reform, however defined, currently dominates the headlines on television, radio and the Internet. The implications for Catholic hospitals are quite numerous and profound, and are topics to be presented during the event.

Chronos currently directs and oversees approximately 60 pre-clinical trials and 30 clinical trials. He is practicing interventional cardiology for The Medical Group of Saint Joseph’s Hospital and is also adjunct professor of medicine at Duke University Medical Center. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians, London, fellow of the American College of Cardiology, fellow of the American Heart Association, and fellow of the European Society of Cardiology. He serves on multiple national and international committees and boards including the National Institutes of Health.

Chronos is world renowned for his pioneering research in angiogenesis. He was the co-national principal investigator on the first major clinical trial of fibroblast growth factors in the United States.

“The Future of Catholic Healthcare in America” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Building on the Upper School campus located at 4449 Northside Drive, Atlanta, near the intersection with Mt. Paran Road. Refreshments will be served at 7 p.m.
