Dr. Atul Gupta has been named as chairman of the the American Heart Association’s 20th annual Heart Ball of the Southern Coast, which will be held Feb. 4 at the Westin Hilton Head Resort and Spa on Hilton Head Island.

In his role as chairman, Gupta will work to raise money for cardiovascular disease research.

Gupta has a concierge practice on Hilton Head and in Bluffton, in which he helps his patients relieve pain, stay healthy and active through proper diet, nutrition, and exercise as well as through performing minor procedures when needed. Before opening his own practice, Gupta was director of the emergency department in the Lowcountry, covering five hospitals. Gupta also earned certifications in wound care and hyperbaric medicine.

The Southern Coast American Heart Association has traditionally raised money for the Hilton Head, Beaufort and Bluffton area. This year, the Savannah community will be served by the association, which is headquartered in Bluffton.
