Organizer

Congenital Heart Legislative Conference

Congenital heart disease, or CHD, is the most common birth defect and leading cause of infant death.  Yet, there is hope - most children born with CHD will live to adulthood. However, there is no cure.  In fact, little is understood about congenital heart disease across the lifespan. The Adult Congenital Heart Association, Children's Heart Foundation and Pediatric Congenital Heart Association, have joined together to bring the voice of CHD to Washington D.C.  We are asking for the federal funding necessary to improve understanding of congenital heart disease across all ages, from before birth to older adults to improve care and save lives.
