Phil Ades, MD Inaugural Endowed Professor
On December 16, 2016, Philip Ades, MD, professor of medicine, director of cardiac rehabilitation and preventive medicine, and a CVRI Distinguished Investigator, was honored as the inaugural Philip Ades, MD Professor of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention. This professorship honors the significant impact of the cardiac rehabilitation and disease prevention work performed by Ades over his more than 30-year career at UVM. Dedicated to improving the lives of patients with heart conditions, Ades has conducted world-class research on the important role exercise can play in rehabilitation after a heart attack and the benefits of weight loss in obese coronary heart disease patients.
The Ades Endowed Professorship was made possible by donations from Ades and his wife, Deborah Rubin, MD, and by gifts from grateful patients, family members, and the estate of alumna Harriet Dustan '42, MD '44, a cardiologist and pioneer in the detection and treatment of hypertension.
