"WCBS TV Presents Documentary Featuring World-Renowned Mount Sinai Cardiologist Valentin Fuster in “The Resilient Heart”"
This Thanksgiving week, WCBS-TV will air “The Resilient Heart,” a feature documentary that explores the keys to eradicating heart disease on a worldwide scale. The film will air on Friday, November 24, from 10 am to 11 am on WCBS (channel 2) and on Sunday, November 26, from 10 pm to 11 pm on WLNY (channels 10/55). Oscar®-nominated, four-time Emmy winner and Grammy®-winning director Susan Froemke premiered “The Resilient Heart” earlier this year. The film, which centers on the work of Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, a world-renowned cardiologist and Physician-in-Chief at The Mount Sinai Hospital, was an official selection at the Newport Beach Film Festival and is available on Amazon Prime Video and Amazon.com. “Every year, more than 17 million people worldwide die from heart disease,” explained Dr. Fuster. “By 2030 that number is expected to be 23 million, and most of those deaths are preventable. I hope this film will help to change those statistics moving forward.”
