About the Author
Daniel Muñoz, M.D., graduated from Princeton University with a degree in economics, working summers as an assistant in a neurosurgery lab and as an intern for Senator Edward Kennedy. During medical school at Johns Hopkins University he took a one-year hiatus to earn a master’s degree in public administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. After earning his M.D., he was accepted as a resident in internal medicine at Hopkins, and later as one of nine fellows in the hospital’s coveted cardiology fellowship program. After further training at the Duke Clinical Research Institute, he is now an attending cardiologist at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
