Dr. Kathy E. Magliato ’85 recently published her memoirs, "Healing Hearts: A Memoir of a Female Heart Surgeon."
The director of Women’s Cardiac Services at Saint John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica, Magliato is one of the few female cardiothoracic surgeons in the world and is the former head of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center artificial heart program.

At Union, Magliato earned a bachelor’s degree cum laude in chemistry and biology. Among her family are father, Nicholas Magliato, Sr. ’58, late uncle Frank J. Magliato ’56 and sister Nancy (Magliato) Jensen ’81. She joined the Board of Trustees in October 2008.
