Council on Lifelong Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Health
in the Young - Message from the Chair

Sarah De Ferranti, MD, MPH, FAHA

Sarah De Ferranti, MD, MPH, FAHAAHA Scientific Council Membership has been an important part of career in Pediatric Cardiology ever since our specialty was created. Over the years, through Council activities, many of the important initiatives that have shaped our discipline have been developed or have been nurtured by the AHA through the Council on Lifelong Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Health in the Young (Young Hearts), and our patients and their families have been the beneficiaries. Young Hearts Council members can play an important role in shaping public policy and clinical standards.
 

We need to continue to be active advocates at all levels — political, scientific and organizational — on behalf of infants, children and adolescents with cardiovascular diseases and adults with congenital heart disease as well. It is only through the active involvement and support of Young Hearts membership that these efforts can continue. Please visit the Council on Lifelong Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Health in the Young on Professional Heart Daily to keep in close touch.

Sincerely,

Sarah De Ferranti, MD, MPH, FAHA
Chair, Council on Lifelong Congenital Heart Disease and Heart Health in the Young
