Join us this year on Saturday, November 9th, 2013 for the 2nd Annual Heart Institute Family Education Day!
Family Education Day is an all-day conference designed for parents, guardians, and caregivers of children with all types of heart disease. Adult survivors of congenital heart disease may also find this event informative.
The event will bring families together with medical care providers for a casual day of education, information and hands-on learning. In addition, families will also be able to meet and discuss pertinent issues that they face with other parents who are in similar situations. The cost is $25 per person and $35 per couple. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
This year’s theme, The Future of Pediatric Cardiology: Innovation, Technology, and Research, will explore the following topics:
