His media interviews include The Huckabee Show, Fox TV, ABC TV, The Wall Street Journal and ESPN, which recently reported on how Dr. Bale screened coaches, scouts and former players from Seattle Seahawks football team for cardiovascular disease (CVD), using a state-of-the-art ultrasound test.

Hundreds of MDs have completed the training, some of whom subsequently opened their own prevention clinics, hailing the course “an incredible resource…the future of medicine,” “the best, by far, educational program I have ever attended,” and “the education of a lifetime…the only totally comprehensive program in the world for the prevention of this disease.”
His research on CVD prevention has been published in such respected medical journals as the American Heart Association’s Circulation, Atherosclerosis, the official journal of the European Atherosclerosis Society, Post Graduate Medicine, Journal of National Medical Association, Journal of Clinical Lipidology, Physician’s Weekly, and Journal of Clinical Lipidology, ADVANCE for Administrators of the Laboratory and ADVANCE for Healthy Aging.
