Council on Lifelong Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Health in the Young (Young Hearts)

Message from the Chair

Anitha S John, MD, PhD, FAHA

Like many organizations, the AHA Council on Lifelong Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Health in the Young (Young Hearts) has undergone a series of changes over the past two years. While 2020 presented us with unprecedented challenges, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought clarity to many on their long-term goals. In addition, the importance of equity, diversity, and inclusion as priorities in combating health disparities was made abundantly clear through the many tragic events we have witnessed.
