The Pulse of the City Gala

Heart disease remains the number one cause of death globally and affects millions around the world. The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to interventional cardiology innovation, research, and education. For more than 30 years, we have been helping doctors improve survival and quality of life for people with heart and vascular disease. Our signature scientific symposium is the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference, the world’s premier meeting in interventional cardiovascular medicine.

Our annual fundraiser has become a hallmark event of the holiday season, drawing hundreds of luminaries in cardiovascular medicine and other medical disciplines, as well as high-ranking leaders in government, business, and the community who are passionate about improving treatment for patients with heart and vascular disease. Now more than ever, CRF needs your support to help meet the needs of the growing prevalence of cardiovascular disease resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds raised at The Pulse of the City Gala allow CRF to pursue innovative areas of research, train tomorrow’s physician leaders, and educate the medical community and public about heart health.

This year, CRF is proud to inaugurate the 2022 Pulse-Setter Awards, to be presented to a program or individual for their outstanding contributions addressing unmet needs or improving access to health care.

With your help, we can significantly reduce the worldwide health and economic burden of heart disease.
