Fellowship award for CHS faculty member

Congratulations to Karen Sweazea, associate professor, who was recently elected a Fellow of the American Heart Association.

Conferred by the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Sciences, the fellowship recognizes professional members of the organization for innovative contributions in the areas of scholarship, practice and volunteer service with the American Heart Association.

Sweazea is a physiologist who specializes in diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Some of her current research seeks potential mechanisms some mammalian and non-mammalian organisms may have which protect them from health complications due to obesity or high blood sugar levels.
