Craig Sable, M.D., aims to reduce the global burden of rheumatic heart disease
Craig Sable, M.D., Associate Chief of the Division of Cardiology and Director of Echocardiography at Children's National Hospital, is working with hundreds of doctors to create a scalable solution to reduce the global burden of rheumatic heart disease (RHD). Over the next few years, Dr. Sable and hundreds of researchers hope to find out if penicillin prevents the earliest form of RHD.
Dr. Sable received a lifetime achievement award—the 2018 Cardiovascular Disease in the Young (CVDY) Meritorious Achievement Award—from the American Heart Association for his work in Uganda.
