This Friday, June 26th, at 1:20 PM CST, Dr. Charlie Berul will join Dr. Ackerman for a special Facebook Live Q&A session about implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and device therapy! If you've ever wanted to know what an ICD is or how one works, here's your chance to ask the experts!
Dr. Berul is the division chief of Cardiology and co-director of the Children's National Heart Insitute at Children's National Hospital. He has over 150 publications in pediatric cardiology and is an acknowledged expert in the area of pediatric cardiac electrophysiology.
To join the Facebook Live session, just go to the SADS Foundation's Facebook page. On Friday, a new video will be available for you to join with the label "LIVE" in the top left-hand corner (illustrated to the right). You can also view previous Facebook Live Sessions under the Videos tab.
