Cat Davis Ahmed is Vice President, Policy and Outreach for the FH Foundation, where she works with individuals with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) and the medical professionals who treat them to raise awareness of FH and improve the understanding, diagnosis, and care of this life-threatening genetic condition that too often leads to early heart disease. As someone who has FH herself, she knows first hand the impact the disorder can have on individuals and families.
Cat works on a national level to advocate on behalf of individuals with FH with policy makers and other decision makers to ensure that FH is recognized and understood as a distinct genetic disorder affecting approximately 1.3 million Americans. The FH Foundation is a non-profit, patient-centered, research and advocacy organization dedicated to increasing the rate of early diagnosis and encouraging proactive treatment of FH in order to prevent premature heart disease. Cat holds an MBA from the Yale School of Management.
