Sana M. Al-Khatib

HRS Member and Duke Electrophysiologist to Run a Half-Marathon to Raise Awareness for Sudden Cardiac Death

"As you may know, October is the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness month. Having devoted my career to the study and prevention of sudden cardiac death and having witnessed first-hand the tragic effect that sudden cardiac death has had on some families, it has been my dream for many years to run a half marathon for this cause. I am thrilled that my dream is about to come true.

On October 14, 2017, I will be running the Cannonball Half Marathon in Greensboro, NC. I will be wearing a T-shirt with the following message: “A Duke cardiologist running for victims of sudden cardiac death who did not live long enough to realize their dreams and for their families who had to endure the tragic loss”. I hope you will support my effort by making a donation to HRS. This page will remain active throughout the month of October. The target amount is $5000, and the money will be devoted to research and/or education on sudden cardiac death. 

With my extremely busy schedule, many of my training sessions had to necessarily take place between 10 pm and midnight. The course is also known to be challenging, and my last half marathon was 4.5 years ago, but I am committed to this and up for the challenge! I hope you will support me in this effort!  No amount is too small." - Sana
