Robert J. Goldberg, PhD 

A professor of medicine and epidemiology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Dr. Goldberg received a PhD in epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health.  He is internationally recognized for his work in cardiovascular epidemiologic research, having served as principal investigator on multiple projects funded by the National Institutes of Health.  Dr. Goldberg initiated the Worcester Heart Attack Study, ongoing since the late 1970s, to examine the incidence, survival rates, and management of acute myocardial infarction in residents of the Worcester metropolitan area.  Findings from this landmark study, which is viewed as one of the premier epidemiologic studies of heart disease in the U.S., have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association.  He is also leading a project entitled “Community Trends in Heart Failure” that has been initiated with funding from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.  Dr. Goldberg is actively involved in teaching public health and preventive medicine to medical students, residents, and community-based physicians.
