Thank you so much for attending Feel the Beat 2018! We had a total of 176 guests at the event, many of whom traveled far and wide to join us.

This year’s theme was evolution at Feel the Beat. The event included a patient/parent panel with speakers Gabrielle Wanek, Michelle Waletzko, and Elizabeth Raszka. We also had physicians speak on how caring for HLHS patients has evolved with presentations from Dr. Tim Nelson from Mayo Clinic, Dr. Wernovsky from Children’s National in Washington D.C., and Dr. James Tweddell from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. You can find videos of this panel and of these presentations on our Facebook.

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

Stay tuned for the date for next year’s Feel the Beat!
