John Warner, the pres­i­dent of the Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion, is re­cov­er­ing af­ter he suf­fered a heart at­tack at a heart health con­fer­ence. On Mon­day, Warner, pic­tured, was at­tend­ing a ma­jor gath­er­ing of heart sci­en­tists in Ana­heim, Calif., when he suf­fered what was de­scribed as a “mild heart at­tack.” “He was taken to a lo­cal hospi­tal, where doc­tors in­serted a stent to open a clogged artery,” read a state­ment by the Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion. Warner, 52, is a Dal­las-based in­ter­ven­tional car­di­ol­o­gist with a long clin­i­cal his­tory of some of the pre­cise con­di­tions that af­flicted him on Mon­day, in­clud­ing early-on­set heart at­tacks. He also comes from a fam­ily that is uniquely sus­cep­ti­ble to heart dis­ease. As­so­ci­a­tion CEO Nancy Brown noted the event is clear ev­i­dence that car­diac events “still hap­pen any­time and any­where.”
