Meet the Founder

Lisa Salberg, Founder and CEO of the HCMA, began on the journey to educate, advocate, and support other patients based on her personal experience with HCM.  This included medical errors that nearly cost her life, the death of her sister - also due to medical errors- and the diagnosis of several family members. 

Lisa has published 3 books on HCM (available on this site), several peer reviewed journal articles, spoken internationally on HCM, and has appeared in TV and print interviews advocating for patients rights, research, and raising awareness of HCM.
