Scripps Clinic Docs Featured on Today Show

As part of a week-long series on heart health, Scripps Clinic cardiologists Richard Schatz, MD, co-chairman of the division of cardiology and research director of cardiovascular interventions at Scripps Clinic’s Heart Lung and Vascular Center and Mimi Guarneri, MD, director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine were featured on the Today Show.

On January 25, Dr. Schatz, the co-inventor of the cardiac stent, discussed ongoing stem cell research, which holds great promise for patients with debilitating heart disease. Part of a multi-site trial, the research is testing whether a patient’s own stem cells can be used to create new blood vessels in the heart.

On January 26, following a taped segment featuring the Healing Hearts program at Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Guarneri discussed her new book, The Heart Speaks, in which she shows how emotions like anger, depression, anxiety and grief can impact heart health.
