Today is a very special day for StopAfib.org founder Mellanie True Hills as she celebrates five years of being atrial fibrillation-free as a result of her minimally-invasive (mini maze) procedure. September is also National Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month, so today is the perfect day to make a big announcement.

StopAfib.org is very pleased to announce our inaugural Medical Advisory Board. This board is made up of 19 of the world's foremost electrophysiologists, surgeons, cardiologists, neurologists, epidemiologists, and researchers, all of whom are on the forefront of afib treatment. You will likely recognize many of them:

  • Lishan Aklog, MD
  • Emelia J. Benjamin, MD
  • Prof. John Camm
  • Riccardo Cappato, MD
  • Ralph J. Damiano Jr., MD
  • James R. Edgerton, MD
  • Kenneth A. Ellenbogen, MD
  • Steven C. Hao, MD
  • Peter R. Kowey, MD
  • Gregory YH Lip, MD
  • Nassir F. Marrouche, MD
  • Andrea Natale, MD
  • Prof. Bo Norrving
  • Douglas L. Packer, MD
  • Eric N. Prystowsky, MD
  • Vivek Y. Reddy, MD
  • Andrea M. Russo, MD
  • John H. Sirak, MD
  • David J. Wilber, MD

The Medical Advisory Board will provide a sounding board to help us continue to provide those living with atrial fibrillation with crucial information about afib and will help us address current and future atrial fibrillation treatments.
