East Parker County Chamber of Commerce is hosting Dr. Stephen Newman as the featured speaker for the April 9 monthly luncheon. Dr. Newman is a Texas native and purchased his first stethoscope in fifth grade with money earned from a paper route after witnessing several family members and neighbors suffering the effects of poor lifestyle choices. He worked in laboratory medicine and radiology while in high school and in pathology and forensic medicine in college. Dr. Newman received his BA from Austin College in 1983 with a major in biology and completed his medical training at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston in 1988. He concurrently completed medical school and research in hematology. He remained at UTMB to complete his internal medicine residency and followed with his fellowship in cardiovascular diseases. He was a clinical instructor at the University of Texas Medical Branch in internal medicine and with the School of Allied Health Sciences Physician Assistant Program. He completed additional work in coronary artery CT angiography at programs in Newport Beach, Cal. (Hoag Hospital), Kansas City and Princeton Longevity Center.
Dr. Newman has been voted to FW Top Docs, America’s Top Physicians in Cardiology by Consumers Research Council, Leading Physicians of the World, Vitals Patients’ Choice Award and Compassionate Doctor Recognition. He has contributed to articles in the Fort Worth Business Press, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Parker County Today and others regarding cardiovascular health as well as featured on WBAP radio and WFAA Good Morning Texas in Dallas-Fort Worth. He has co-authored chapters on cardiovascular medicine in Patient Education: A Practical Approach in 1996 while at the University of Texas Medical Branch and presented research on myocardial viability at the Second International Conference of Nuclear Cardiology, Cannes, France in 1995. He has lectured in the US, Mexico and the Caribbean on preventive cardiology and advanced imaging.
His professional interest is in preventive and integrative cardiovascular medicine and started the Centre for Heart & Vascular Health at HCNT.

His philosophy is that you must treat the whole person and that sleep, nutrition and physical activity are necessary components to maintaining a healthy heart and vascular system.
