Wechsler delivered the 10th annual Wil Camp Sealy Lecture at the institute.  The yearly lecture honors Sealy, who developed surgical electrophysiology. His work became the basic knowledge used to treat cardiac arrhythmias, either surgically or by catheter-based techniques. Wechsler spoke about surgical ventricular reconstruction. (Contributed photo)
