Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, Director, Mount Sinai Heart, Physician-in-Chief, the Mount Sinai Hospital
Join Dr. Fuster on his global mission to bring heart healthy knowledge, habits, and attitudes to developing countries. Originally started as a pilot program in Bogota, Colombia, Dr. Fuster’s landmark effort to teach children about health has blossomed into a national program in Colombia, and has been expanded to Spain, Kenya and Grenada. The first of its kind, this effort has not only gathered groundbreaking data, but has had scientifically proven impact on population health. This illuminating documentary follows Dr. Fuster from Colombia, to Spain, Kenya, Grenada and Harlem as he creates programs that address the health needs of these underserved populations.
