Feel the Beat 2016

Thank you to all who attended our fourth annual Feel the Beat event on Saturday, October 8. It was a fun-filled day focused on collaboration that brought together patients, families, advocates, researchers, and doctors from over 15 different states.


Some of the highlights from the day include learning firsthand about the exciting research taking place during the research science fair, hearing from inspiring and informative guest speakers (Meagan Broucek, Christina DeShaw, Kelly DiMaggio, and Stacey Lihn), and learning about how the future of HLHS is transforming as new collaborations are being formed. For those of you who were unable to attend either in person or online, you can watch the speakers below.

Thanks to all who attended to make our fourth annual Feel the Beat event the best one yet! See you next year at the fifth annual Feel the Beat event on October 14, 2017!
