Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alvan R. Feinstein (died October 25, 2001) was a clinician, a researcher and an epidemiologist who made significant impact on clinical investigation, especially on the field of clinical epidemiology that he helped define. He died at the age of 75 in Toronto on 25 October 2001 and is survived by his wife and two children.Born in Philadelphia, Feinstein received his bachelor's (BSc 1947), master's (MSc, 1948) and medical degrees (MD, 1952) at the University of Chicago and undertook his residency at Rockefeller Institute. He was Board Certified in Internal Medicine in 1955 and became the medical director of Irvington House. While there, he studied patients with rheumatic fever and challenged the belief that proper treatment after an early diagnosis kept those patients from developing severe heart disease later in life. He demonstrated that the disease had different forms including one which causes joint pain and seldom progresses to heart disease.show more
