DR. HEATHER BLOOM

TAUGHT BY DR. HEATHER BLOOM, THE AHF'S TRUSTED MEDICAL ADVISOR

Dr. Heather Bloom is an Associate Professor in Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine and Head of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Lab at the Atlanta VAMC.  After completing her MD degree in her home state of Vermont in 1996, she did one year of General Surgery training, then moved to California to complete Internal Medicine Residency at St. Mary’s Medical Center and General Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship at University of California at Davis. 

 

She then moved to Atlanta to do her final 2 years of Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship at Emory, after which she joined on as Faculty in 2005.  Heather  has been involved with numerous research trials, has co-authored over 28 published peer reviewed publications,  and  participates in multiple national and international committees for the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association and Heart Rhythm Society, among others.

 

Heather has been involved with several endeavors involving community cardiac education.  Her primary research and community education focus is on prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death.

Personally, Heather learned to ski and ice skate at the age of 3, but didn’t pick up a hockey stick until she was in Medical School.  When she found UC Davis had a men’s club team, she joined and played 2 seasons.  When she moved to Atlanta in 2003 she started playing with the AAHL and the Lady Thrashers.  Heather  is a level 4 USA Hockey coach, and has coached her son’s teams from Mite to Bantam.  She currently plays as much as possible, working hockey in around being a full time cardiologist and single mom.

PROVIDING FIRST AID KITS TO ALL AAHL TEAMS

The Atlanta Hockey Foundation is making first aid kits available for all teams throughout the AAHL. If your team needs a first aid kit, your captain can claim one at the next Training event or request one through the AHF.
