Children, adolescents and adults with heart disease are invited to the 6th Annual Heart Institute Family Education Day on Saturday, October 28! Family Education Day is a free all-day conference designed for parents, guardians and caregivers of children and adults 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. Immediate family members only please (patient spouses, parents/guardians and siblings up to age 13). Free onsite child care and concurrent education program will be offered for children ages 1 to 13.


Family Education Day is free! Online registration is required for the following groups:

  • Adult Cardiac Patient (18+ years)
  • Parent/Guardian
  • Cardiac Child (0-13 years)
  • Sibling (0-13 years)

Child registration is full for cardiac children and siblings. Please register cardiac children and siblings for the waitlist and we will notify you for if spots become available.

Adult registration will remain open even though child registration is at capacity. Registering for either adult group guarantees attendance for the adult cardiac patient and parent/guardian but does not guarantee cardiac child or sibling spots.

Please contact us if you need to cancel any reserved spots so we can notify those on the appropriate waitlist.
