"Knowledge is the antidote to fear." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
We at Mayo Clinic's Windland Smith Rice Genetic Heart Rhythm Clinic are committed to helping our patients and their families navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and how it relates to their genetic heart disorder. The more you know about COVID-19 and its potential treatments, the more protected you and your family will be. Over the past few weeks, Dr. Ackerman has been involved in various ways to advocate for our patients with genetic heart disorders ranging from question-and-answer sessions in collaboration with the SADS Foundation to various TV and newspaper interviews discussing the role of QT monitoring for patients requiring some of the potential drugs to treat COVID-19. The most recent interviews are available below. These links, and more, are available under "What Dr. Ackerman is saying" under the COVID-19 tab.
