This Friday, May 29th, at 1:20 PM CST, we will be having a special SADS Foundation Facebook Live Q&A! Dr. Robert Hamilton, Dr. Andrew Krahn, and Dr. Shubhayan Sanatani from the Canadian SADS Foundation will be joining Dr. Ackerman to answer YOUR questions!

The Canadian Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation (aka The Canadian SADS Foundation) is a registered Canadian charity committed to saving the lives and supporting the families of children and young adults who are genetically predisposed to sudden death due to heart rhythm abnormalities.
