Inaugural Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) CME Program

An unidentified speaker explains his pointDeborah Heart and Lung Center and the Cardiovascular Institute of Philadelphia (CVI) announce the Inaugural Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) CME Program, featuring a Keynote Presentation by Curt Daniels, MD, Director of the Adolescent and Adult CHD Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

The goal of this program is to educate providers on the most appropriate diagnostic strategies and management of patients born with congenital heart disease who are transitioning/have transitioned from pediatric to adult cardiovascular care.

The population of children with congenital heart disease (CHD) surviving to adulthood has grown to 90% over the last 50 years due to significant advances in the surgical management of CHD. This has led to an increased prevalence of adults living with CHD; estimating 1.5 million adults surviving CHD in the US alone. There are less than 500 board-certified ACHD cardiologists in the United States today; clearly a shortage of ACHD physician resources and a significant knowledge gap in the management of these patients.
