American Heart Association appoints Bruce Ovbiagele Editor-in-Chief of Journal of the American Heart Association -

Dr. Bruce Ovbiagele, has been named the new editor-in-chief of the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA), a peer-reviewed, open access journal published online by the American Heart Association, effective Jan. 1, 2023. He succeeds previous Editor-in-Chief Barry London, M.D., Ph.D., who has led the journal since November 2014. JAHA is an online-only journal that publishes articles individually as they are accepted and compiles articles into 24 issues a year, twice each month.

Dr. Ovbiagele is a clinical epidemiologist, neurologist and global health scholar focused on reducing the burden of stroke in the U.S. and Sub-Saharan Africa. His work in the United States led to the discovery that middle-aged women experience stroke at three times the rate of men the same age, and additional research linked those stroke rates to the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes and obesity. Dr. Ovbiagele calls attention to adopting healthier lifestyles as a means of stroke prevention, among its many other benefits.

Dr. Ovbiagele is a board-certified vascular neurologist and a professor of neurology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Weill Institute for Neurosciences. He is also associate dean and chief of staff at the San Francisco Veteran Affairs Health Care System (SFVAHCS). Additional roles include serving as a professor at four colleges abroad: University of Ibadan in Nigeria (medicine); Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana (medicine); Capital Medical University/Xuan Wu Hospital in China (neurology); and Favaloro University/Instituto de Neurologia Cognitiva in Argentina (neurology).
