Expanding Cardiovascular Team

Emory Healthcare is constantly growing, and in doing so continues to welcome some of the best faculty and staff members in the industry. Here’s a spotlight on two of the newest members of our cardiovascular team:

Camden Hebson, MD
Camden Hebson, MDDr. Hebson was born in Gadsden, Alabama and raised in Birmingham. He attended Vanderbilt University for undergraduate training and then returned to Alabama for medical school. Dr. Hebson joined Emory Healthcare eight years ago and has since completed a pediatric residency, chief residency, pediatric cardiology fellowship, and an advanced fellowship in adult congenital cardiology.

Dr. Hebson now cares for both children and adults with congenital heart disease. He focuses on lifelong care and has particular interest in patients with single ventricle disease, aortopathies (including bicuspid aortic valves), and patients with congenital heart disease who become pregnant. He sees patients at both The Emory Clinic located on Clifton Road and Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital.

Dr. Hebson enjoys spending time with his family – wife Carolyn, son Henry, and daughter Alice. His other interests outside of cardiology include fishing, leisure reading, and being a self proclaimed “baseball junkie.”

Jonathan Kim, MD
Jonathan Kim, MDDr. Kim is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology, and additionally holds an adjunct Assistant Professorship in the Division of Applied Physiology at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Kim received his Bachelor of Science in Biology at Emory in 1998. He was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship and studied in Melbourne, Australia before attending Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard University before completing his General Cardiology fellowship at Emory in 2014. Dr. Kim was chief fellow at Emory between 2013-14. Dr. Kim joined the faculty at Emory in 2014 as part of the Emory Clinical Cardiovascular Research Institute.

Dr. Kim’s research focuses on issues relevant to sports cardiology and exercise physiology. His interest and published work in this field began during his time in Boston, and continued as a fellow at Emory. Dr. Kim has engaged in and published work analyzing exercise-induced cardiovascular remodeling, pre-participation ECG screening of collegiate athletes, cardiac arrests in marathon and half-marathons, and hypertension in isometric sporting disciplines. Dr. Kim has a strong clinical interest in sports cardiology as well, and will be developing a dedicated sports cardiology clinic at Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Outside of cardiology, Dr. Kim enjoys running, golf, watching sports and spending time with his wife and two kids: son Benjamin (age 3) and daughter Isabella (age 1).

Emory Teams Giving Back During Holidays

Emory gives backThe Emory Department of Cardiology started an annual holiday tradition 15 years ago when one of the employees asked that instead of exchanging gifts within the department they could sponsor a family in need.  Each year the tradition has grown and the department has worked with the CASA (Fulton County Court Appointed Special Advocates) to support 20 children per year!

This year, the cardiology department team expanded the reach of their tradition, by including the Departments of Medicine and Cell Biology. In doing so, our Emory team was able to provide holiday gifts for 56 children that are in the care of the Fulton County court system.  These are children that have either been abandon by their parents or removed from their homes by the courts. They are housed in dormitories and temporary foster homes and truly in need of  help.

Emory team members purchased gifts ranging from toys, to bikes, to clothing, to books and educational aids for the children for the holiday season to bring some extra joy their way. Unfortunately, doing so during the holidays is not enough. The need is great and occurs year round.  Everything from diapers to iPODs are needed for these children from our Atlanta community.

We hope to continue to expand this effort across Emory Healthcare and Emory University in the years ahead.  Many children will have a little more joy in their day because of the generosity of a small group of employees.  What would the world be like if we all shared a little of what we have with those in more need than us?

Have you started a holiday tradition to give back? If so, please share yours with us in the comments below!
