“They are living examples of how American Heart Association volunteers touch lives. Together, they have made a significant impact in our community, not only through their professional careers, but also through their volunteer efforts,” said Alice Luse, executive director of the Akron AHA.
Dr. Mike Hughes, of Northeast Ohio Cardiovascular Specialists Inc., is a past president and active member of the AHA Association Board of Trustees. Casey Hughes also was active on the board, and together they co-chaired the local Heart Ball twice. Casey created a heart-healthy cookbook for heart patients, and Mike has served as a spokesperson in the community, educating others about cardiovascular risk factors and warning signs.
Recipients of the J. Paul Sauvageot volunteer award demonstrate excellence through research, education, community service, fundraising, management or public relations relating to cardiovascular health, according to the AHA.
