Thanks to all who attended for making the 2015 Family Education Day a success. We had record attendance and representation from seven states. Parents, caregivers and adult patients valued the table lunches with faculty and the opportunity to ask questions of the experts, including further development of peer-to-peer support. Kids had a fantastic time doing crafts, taking photos with friends in the photo booth, playing in Seacrest Studios and learning about heart health. Our dear partners Mended Little Hearts of Cincinnati hosted a family fun night for all who attended Family Education Day.
We look forward to seeing you in 2016.

The Heart Institute Family Education Day is an all-day conference designed for parents, guardians and caregivers of children with all types of heart disease. This event will bring them together with medical care providers for a casual day of education, information and hands-on learning. In addition, families will be able to meet and discuss pertinent issues that they face. We invite children, adolescents and adults as we journey through Acceptance, Action and Advocacy.
