On Aug. 20-21, 2009, NCSL hosted a Legislator in the Lab meeting at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Legislators saw presentations on technological advances in cardiovascular care, health disparities and advances in cardiovascular surgery. In addition legislators were able to tour the Student Family Health Care Center, the S.A.V.E. (Screening Access of Value to Essex Women and Men) Program Mobile Unit and the Clinical Skills Center where medical students are able to develop and practice their clinical and cultural competency skills.

One of the presentations given during the Legislator in the Lab Meeting, was an Overview of the Cardiology Program at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey by Dr. Marc Klapholz. During this presentation, Dr. Klapholz told the group about an innovative program at UMDNJ called “STAT-MI”.

Dr. Klapholz has generously re-created this portion of his presentation for NCSL.
