Dona Winnowski ’91 started a nonprofit organization dedicated to the management and treatment of pericardial disease, along with her doctor from the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Allan Klein, and many other leaders in the field of pericarditis. Visit their website at pericarditisalliance.org.

After open heart surgery in 2017, followed by pericarditis in 2019, Dona was inspired to help others like her who are afflicted with complicated pericarditis. You can hear her personal story in a podcast on heartofinflammation.com/recurrent-pericarditis-prognosis.
