The Windland Smith Rice Genetic Heart Rhythm Clinic team wants you to know that we are here for you during this global pandemic. It's a scary time and there are a lot of unknowns, but we don't want the impact of COVID-19 on your genetic heart disorder to be one of them.

We've added a new COVID-19 tab to our Mayo Clinic Genetic Heart Rhythm Connect page. This page is meant to answer some of your most asked questions, provide information that you can trust, and put some of your concerns at ease. This page is being updated daily with news articles, videos, and information.

The tab can be found at this address:

On this tab, you can find information about COVID-19, current government guidelines and government-provided information, videos that feature Dr. Ackerman and his thoughts about COVID-19, and resources, news articles and scientific papers relevant to COVID-19 and families with genetic heart disorders.

Please feel free to share this page with anyone you would like. The more you know, the less there is to fear. We are all in this together.

Meet other people talking about genetic heart disorders and COVID-19 on Mayo Clinic Connect. Join the Heart Rhythm Conditions group or the COVID-19 group to join the conversation, share experiences, ask questions and discover your support network.
