My name is Dr. William Grossman and I am a UCSF professor and a medical doctor specializing in cardiology. I am also the founding physician and co-director of the Center for Prevention of Heart and Vascular Disease of the UCSF Medical Center. Thank you for visiting our website and for your support of our ongoing effort to provide the best in clinical care and patient information.

We believe that an integral part of an effective heart disease prevention strategy includes arming patients with the latest information and resources so they can make educated, healthy lifestyle decisions. To this end, please visit two of our most popular sections: Ask Dr. Grossman, where I respond to frequent questions about heart and vascular disease, and Research In The News, my lay-friendly commentary on a selected group of articles from scientific journals or mainstream news related to your heart and general health.

Each year we will also offer a variety of educational resources including live seminars and online content. Visit our site often for updates on our latest activities and offerings.

In partnership with your medical provider, each of us can find options to pursue a heart healthy lifestyle and minimize our risk of serious cardiovascular disease. Here at the Center for Heart and Vascular Disease Prevention, we are pleased to be your partner.

On behalf of our entire team, I warmly welcome you to our Center.
