Heart Surgeon Allan Stewart from New York-Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center will receive "Young Heart Award" at the 2013 Red Ball

One notable event that brings together heart doctors, patients, and their families & advocates is the annual "NYC Young Professionals Red Ball" hosted by the American Heart Association. The Red Ball will be held on April 18, 2013 at Crimson NYC and features a cocktail reception, dancing and a silent auction.  It is an affair that attracts over 300 of New York City’s young leaders from the business, medical, philanthropic, entertainment and fashion communities. The Red Ball is an opportunity to mix business with pleasure while raising critically-needed funds to support the AHA’s life-saving research, education and community-based initiatives. The goal is to raise $100,000 to support the AHA’s mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. 

Dr. Allan Stewart, a heart surgeon at New York-Presbyterian / Columbia University Medical Center is the honoree for this year's event. He is the recipient of the 2013 Young Hearts Award. "This is a tremendous honor and I am humbled by the organization’s faith and confidence in me." said Dr. Stewart. He is described by his patients as having a larger than life persona. "He is a life-changer, not just a life-saver," said Benjamin Carey a former patient. "He has great relationships with all of his patients and he is a Rockstar in every sense of the word. The room changes when he walks into it, conversation is enhanced when he joins it, and lives are enriched by him. He embodies being a doctor in ways that are not taught in medical school. He is one of the few heart surgeons who truly understand what it means to be on both sides of the scalpel", said Carey.
