Feel the Beat 2015: Dr. Christopher Moir
Join us at our third annual Feel the Beat event to get an inside look into what it takes to be a pediatric surgeon. In 2006, Dr. Christopher Moir led a 40 person surgical team to successfully separate 5-month-old conjoined twins, Abygail and Madysen Fitterer. Abygail and Madysen were born joined at the chest but, after their operation, they now lead happy and healthy lives.
Dr. Moir will share his perspective on what it means to have courage and what’s in store for the future of congenital heart disease. You won’t want to miss hearing from this pediatric surgeon! Still need to register for Feel the Beat? Sign up here!
