He has a master’s degree in Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics from The Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Dr. Agarwal is the founder and the Director of NeuroCardiac Comprehensive Care Clinic (N4C), the first of its kind in the United States. It is a “One-Stop-Shop” that offers comprehensive, multi-disciplinary, well-coordinated care for survivors of cardiac arrest. Dr. Agarwal's research interests lie in characterizing the cognitive, psychological, and health behavioral dimensions of cardiac arrest survivorship, and their association with cardiovascular disease risk, functional outcomes, and quality of life. He is involved in designing behavioral interventions for heart-specific anxiety and posttraumatic stress by leveraging some of the physiological and biological targets. His recent initiative, NeuroCardiac Comprehensive Care for Co-survivors & Family members (N4C-F) is partnering with family members of cardiac arrest patients, both locally at NYPH and nationally, to develop resources and care pathways to help promote knowledge, self-care, and ways to alleviate distress among the co-survivors and bereaved family members. Dr. Agarwal is an active member of the American Heart Association.
