She is a Diplomate of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and a Certified Health and Wellness Coach by the nationally and internationally recognized American Fitness Professionals and Associates (AFPA). Dr. Chamoun serves as a Co-Chair of Cardiology group at the American College of Lifestyle Medicine where she works to build collaborations with other organizations and to advance the field of Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Chamoun has more than 20 years of combined expertise in clinical and academic cardiology, Lifestyle Medicine, cardiac imaging, and the cardiac safety industry. Dr. Chamoun entered medical school in her home country Ukraine at age 17 and obtained her MD degree, Summa Cum Laude, when she was only 23. She received her PhD degree at age 26. She subsequently moved to the US and completed her Internal Medicine Residency Program at one of the University of Virginia School of Medicine programs, and the Cardiovascular Fellowship with a subspecialty in Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. She practiced state-of-the-art non-invasive cardiology and multi-modality cardiac imaging at CASEP, the largest private-practice group on the Main Line of Philadelphia. She participated in the training of cardiovascular disease fellows, residents, and cardiac sonographers and took part in public health and wellness education. From 2007 through August 2021, Dr. Chamoun served as a Chief Cardiologist at Clario (former ERT), - the leading global database, technology, and innovation company for clinical trials. At Clario, she developed and implemented novel cardiac safety solutions and participated in company’s expansion to global markets. Dr. Chamoun is an experienced educator in the field of Lifestyle Medicine and Preventive Cardiology. For decades, she has been cultivating knowledge about unhealthy lifestyles as the root cause of chronic diseases. When the covid-19 pandemic started, she worked with her company’s HR to revise workplace wellness programs and improve employee work-life balance. Dr. Chamoun remembers watching helplessly, however, as the medical professional burnout crisis, brewing under the surface for a long time, was now raging not sparing her friends and family members. This is when she realized that her professional mission was not accomplished until she helped fellow medical workers to stay healthy, both mentally and physically. In April 2022, Dr. Chamoun pivoted her 20-year career as a cardiologist, to fully concentrate on pursuing medical professional burnout prevention and management. She founded CardioSeeds, LLC - a company that works on restoring health of healthcare through provider burnout reduction which, Dr. Chamoun believes, needs to be addressed on both system and individual level. CardioSeeds works with members of medical community, hospital administrators, training programs, policy makers, and technology companies addressing physician burnout as one of the top priorities of American healthcare. Dr. Chamoun is also the founder/host of the CardioSeeds podcast dedicated to Lifestyle Medicine and burnout prevention. CardioSeeds podcast has a robust following and rapidly growing popularity. Now, thank her passion, expertise, and commitment, Dr. Chamoun became a known and effective burnout prevention advocate and educator among medical professionals and trainees alike, and has a strong on-line presence and robust following of her podcast and other social media platforms. She is a frequent speaker on podcasts and seminars, profess
