This award also honors her role as a mentor who has paved the way for many of her colleagues to excel.

“We are delighted to honor Dr. Martha Gulati as the 2023 Arthur S.

She is director of Preventive Cardiology and associate director of the Preventive and Rehabilitative Cardiac Center in the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai, as well as associate director of the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center in the Department of Cardiology at Cedars-Sinai.

Her research has focused on the role of traditional and nontraditional risk factors in cardiovascular disease, including the effects of menopause, pregnancy and hormone therapy.
