Mayfield Clinic and University of Cincinnati Department of Neurosurgery are helping the American Heart Association Mini Marathon

The Mayfield Clinic and University of Cincinnati Department of Neurosurgery are helping the American Heart Association fight the nation's No. 1 and No. 3 causes of death,  heart disease and stroke, at the Mini Marathon & Heart Walk on March 28. Funds raised through the Mini Marathon & Heart Walk support research, community service and public and professional education programs.

The Mayfield Clinic has joined other area businesses and healthcare providers as a sponsor for the popular annual event. The Heart Association's work in stroke education, prevention and services fit with Mayfield's neuroscience mission. In a typical year our physicians and clinical associates treat 25,000 patients, many of whom are impacted by stroke. Through basic science research and clinical trials, the faculty and researchers in the Department of Neurosurgery are committed to making new discoveries and improving treatments for patients impacted by stroke and cerebrovascular disease.

Our team captain for the March 28 event is Jed Hartings, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery.
