MINNEAPOLIS -- (March 17, 2017) - Steven M. Bradley, MD, MPH, FACC, has been awarded the 2017 Douglas P.

He is a nationally recognized and published expert in healthcare quality improvement and has received additional national awards for his efforts to achieve exceptional cardiovascular care delivery.

"Dr. Bradley's invaluable contributions to the field of cardiovascular medicine show unparalleled dedication to excellence and boundless commitment to improving patient care," said ACC President Richard Chazal, MD, FACC.
