The Lown Foundation was founded by Dr. Bernard Lown in 1973. Dr. Lown is a world-renowned cardiologist and Nobel laureate, recognized for his groundbreaking work on the causes and treatment of heart disease and cardiac arrhythmias and the development of the direct current (DC) defibrillator that has become a lifesaving device worldwide. He also penned the seminal book on patient-centered care, The Lost Art of Healing.
Through research and education, the Lown Foundation has promoted a rational, humane, and cost-effective model of treatment that advocates prevention over costly, invasive treatments.
We believe that good health care requires not just excellent science, but a strong dose of compassion and a commitment to prevention.
