The mission of the IHH Adult Support Group is to build a community of adult patients living with congenital heart disease. We strive to improve the lives of adult congenital heart survivors through emotional support and meaningful education.
Together with Primary Children's Medical center, IHH will hosted an Adults with CHD Symposium on Thursday, November 5th, 2015. The symposium was held in the Eccles outpatient building across from the main Primary Children's campus in the Lone Peak conference room which is on the first floor.
Anyone was able to attend to hear adults speak about living with CHD's and to ask any questions they may have had. We encouraged all of our members to attend if possible, as this was a great opportunity for parents to learn about how their child's transition will go and for older children to ask questions about self management and living as an adult with a CHD.
On Saturday, April 26, 2014 Intermountain Healing Hearts hosted a Symposium at the University of Utah Cardiovascular Clinic where a panel of 9 adults with Congenital Heart Defects's talked with and answered questions for parents of children with CHD's. It was very interesting and informative for both parents and CHD Adults.
A big thank you to our panelists: Mimi McDonald, Michelle Hiles, Ali Clegg, Ashlee Rooks, Matthew Mays, Tiff Passow, Randy Clark, Nick Brady, and Julie Despain.
