At this year’s American Society for Preventive Cardiology Congress on CVD Prevention, Emelia J. Benjamin, MD, ScM, delivered the Honorary Fellow Award Lecture, “The Imperative to Focus on the Prevention of Atrial Fibrillation,” as the recipient of this year’s Honorary Fellow of the American Society for Preventive Cardiology award—having received the honor for her extraordinary contributions to the field of preventive cardiology.

She stopped by to talk with The American Journal of Managed Care® while in Arlington, Texas, and our conversation covered everything from just what atrial fibrillation (AFib) is to risk factors and prevention strategies to connections between AFib and noncardiovascular health conditions to long-term data on stroke.

Benjamin is associate provost for faculty development at Boston University Medical Campus; cardiologist at Boston Medical Center, a large urban safety net hospital; professor of medicine, Department of Medicine, at Boston University Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine; and professor of epidemiology, Boston University School of Public Health.
