AHA President Has Heart Attack During Heart Health Conference
(NATIONAL POST) John Warner, president of the American Heart Association, suffered a heart attack while attending a heart health conference.
On Monday, Warner was attending a major gathering of heart scientists in Anaheim, California when he suffered what was described as a “mild heart attack.”
“He was taken to a local hospital, where doctors inserted a stent to open a clogged artery,” read a statement by the American Heart Association.
Warner, 52, is an interventional cardiologist with a long history of treating some of the precise conditions that afflicted him on Monday, including early-onset heart attacks.
Warner’s heart attack struck right amidst what is usually the career pinnacle of an American cardiologist; overseeing the American Heart Association’s scientific sessions while serving as its president.
