Thank YOU for attending Feel the Beat 2017!

Nov 8, 2017 | Suzanne Ferguson | @suzannerferguson


We had a fantastic event on Saturday, October 14 here at Mayo Clinic for the fifth annual Feel the Beat event! There were over 270 attendees from 12 states and Canada who traveled all the way to Rochester, Minnesota.

We had a great lineup of speakers from Karen Wanek, Brenton Ball, Erin Borkowski, Diane Pickles and Annie Ritchings. We also had physician members speak from the HLHS Consortium – Dr. Frank Cetta from Mayo Clinic, Dr. Joseph Rossano from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and Dr. Subramanyan from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

It was an exciting day and we are all happy you could be a part of it!

Make sure to mark your calendars for next year’s Feel the Beat event on September 8 in Rochester, MN!
