Our team of leading scientists, researchers and physicians will host an educational patient and family appreciation event to showcase the work we've done with your help. We can’t do this without you. Join us to see how your contributions to our ongoing research are making a difference.

Hoping: Your stories make a difference and we are eager to hear them.

We encourage families to share their HLHS story through pictures, storyboards, networking and conversations with other families. These stories help to inspire our work and prioritize the efforts of our team.

Learning: Your participation matters, and we continue to need your help. Interact with our researchers, physicians and support staff. Find out what their roles are within our research program, and share your ideas.

Healing: We care, and the needs of our patients come first. Learn about how the integration of clinical practice, research, and education means the best possible care for our patients. Come and meet:

Dr. Tim Nelson – Director, Program for Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome

Dr. Pat O’Leary – Pediatric Cardiology

Dr. Tim Olson – Pediatric Cardiology

Dr. Andre Terzic – Director, Center for Regenerative Medicine

Dr. Harold Burkhart – Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery

Dr. Myra Wick – Obstetrics and Gynecology

Searching: We are working for a bright future. In the past three years, we have answered many questions about HLHS. Still, there's much more to learn. We will share a look ahead to show how we are working to find answers, and ultimately, prevent or delay transplant for those affected by HLHS.

Go to the ‘October Event’ page at the right to register by September 18. We hope to see you there!
