Director of the Preventive Cardiology Program and Associate Professor of Medicine
Medical College of Wisconsin
Dr. Jacquelyn Kulinski is director of the Preventive Cardiology Program and associate professor of Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin with a secondary appointment as associate professor in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. She is a board-certified cardiologist with a strong interest in preventive cardiology and provides individualized and comprehensive cardiovascular risk assessment to patients.
Dr. Kulinski earned her medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. She completed a residency in internal medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle, and then completed a fellowship in cardiovascular medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. She holds a certificate in clinical and translational science from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the medical college. Dr. Kulinski is board-certified in cardiovascular medicine, adult echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, and cardiovascular computed tomography.
Much of her research has focused on the role of diet and lifestyle behaviors in heart disease. Dr. Kulinski is interested in understanding mechanisms of how “sitting disease” contributes to cardiometabolic health risk and the role of preeclampsia as a risk factor for future cardiovascular disease in women. Over the last couple of years, she has collaborated with music professors and music therapy teams to study the impact of singing on vascular endothelial function. This collaboration led to the National Institutes of Health R61 grant "Evaluating the Impact of Singing Interventions on Markers of Cardiovascular Health in Older Patients with Cardiovascular Disease,” which is now in its second year of subject recruitment.
