Dr. Michael Criqui was named one of five AHA Distinguished Scientists for 2010

Michael H.Criqui, MD, MPH, FAHA, professor and chief of the Division of Preventative Medicine in the Department of Family and Preventative Medicine at the University of California, San Diego was honored as a Distinguished Scientist by the American Heart Association (AHA) at this year’s AHA Scientific Sessions in Chicago, Illinois.  This is the highest honor given by the AHA.

Criqui is one of five honorees this year to join the ranks of 65 other preeminent researchers and scientists.  He is an active and productive investigator in cardiovascular epidemiology and preventive cardiology, and has made seminal contributions in the fields of peripheral arterial disease, subclinical atherosclerosis and peripheral venous disease.  Criqui has published over 385 manuscripts and book chapters and has been an invited lecturer at numerous national and international meetings.
