    Dr. Robert Mentz completed internal medicine training at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and cardiology fellowship followed by advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology training at Duke University Hospital and the Duke Clinical Research Institute. He is the new director of the Heart Failure section in the Duke Division of Cardiology. His areas of clinical and research focus include treating comorbid diseases in heart failure patients, use of biomarkers and surrogate and non-fatal outcomes in heart failure trials, and novel therapeutic approaches to heart failure. Dr. Mentz is heavily involved in many clinical trials and serves as the associate editor at Circulation: Heart Failure. In addition to his clinical and research endeavors, Dr. Mentz is heavily invested in the cardiology fellowship where he serves as associated program director and renown mentor for which he has won many fellow-nominated awards. Finally, as former director of the Duke University Cooperative Cardiovascular Society, he expanded the network of current and former Duke trainees to be a leading enroller in clinical trials. We are really excited about him joining the show to discuss Diuretics ARNi SGLT2/GLP1 therapies for HFpEF.







    Dr. Rahul Loungani completed medical school at the medical university of SC and then traveled to Baltimore for internal medicine training in the Osler Residency Program at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.  Here he fell in love with the management and hemodynamics of critically ill patients. He is currently a third-year cardiology fellow at Duke University Medical Center where he will also be pursuing fellowship in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology next year. His current interests are in Cardiac amyloid, in particular it's arrhythmic manifestations, early diagnosis, and novel therapeutics. He also loves teaching the housestaff and was awarded the Cassell-Saperstein award at Duke,  recognizing the fellow who most demonstrates a commitment to teaching and passion for clinical education.
