This is a unique conference that brings heart families and heart professionals together to empower heart children and their families.
It’s an opportunity to learn from the experts—physicians, nurses, psychologists, researchers, fellow parents, and other heart kids—and to connect, share, and support each other.
This year’s conference will have a wide variety of sessions, including special sessions for teens with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). A children’s program with licensed childcare is also offered for a fee.
* Families and healthcare professionals sharing and learning from each other’s experiences of caring for children and youth with congenital, acquired, and electrical heart disease.
* Special programs for youth (ages 13 to 19) and children (ages 6 months to 12 years)
* Plenary speakers, concurrent sessions, and tours.
* A special presentation by youth on growing up with heart disease from the Hearts of Gold Youth Program.
Information regarding registration will be posted here on this event page and on the Children’s Heart Network website at childrensheartnetwork.org.
Healthcare professionals, healthcare professional students, parents, youth, and children of all ages are welcome. We hope you will join us for this year’s conference.
