美国心脏协会总裁的人生目标
   
史提芬·豪泽博士,美国心脏协会(AHA)2016—2017年的总裁,同时也是费城天普大学研究院的高级副院长。他这样谈论他的目标:
 
我的目标
我的目标是积极发现新知识,可以帮助我们更好地了解心血管疾病和中风的原因。我的信念是,探索科学,并形成下一组治疗疾病的基础。同时,我也坚定地支持培养下一代心血管疾病的科学家和医生。
 
为什么我成为美国心脏协会的志愿者
当我读研的时候,我父亲的病发展成了心脏衰竭,并在他51岁时因继发性心脏病发作而过早离去。这时,我改变了自己的研究兴趣,转而研究心血管疾病,并成为美国心脏协会的志愿者。所以我的科学研究与志愿者工作,都涉及到减少由心血管疾病和中风引发的的残疾与死亡。
 
我坚持的原因
我的父亲因心血管疾病而早逝,这曾经是也将继续是我坚持自己所做工作的原因。这就是为什么我会如此热衷于尝试帮助别人的理由——帮助他们可以活得更长久、更健康、并更有价值!

Steven Houser, Ph.D., FAHA talks about his goals as the American Heart Association president for 2016-2017.  He is senior associate dean of research at Temple University in Philadelphia, Penn.
 
My goals
My goals are to promote the discovery of new knowledge that can help us to better understand the causes of cardiovascular disease and stroke. My belief is that discovery science forms the basis for the next set of cures for disease. I also will be a strong proponent for the training of the next generation of cardiovascular scientists and physicians.
 Why I volunteer for the American Heart Association
When I was in my graduate student training years, my father developed heart failure and died prematurely at age 51, secondary to a heart attack. At that point, I changed my research interests to the study of cardiovascular disease and became a volunteer for the American Heart Association, so my science is aligned with my volunteer work, both related to reducing death and disability from cardiovascular disease and stroke.
My Why
My father's premature death from cardiovascular disease has been and will continue to be my why, why I'm so passionate about trying to help others so that they can live longer, healthier, more productive lives.
