Did you know that about 25% of infants are born with heart defects as the
result of a genetic syndrome? Are you aware that there are also isolated
genetic causes of CHD? Do you wonder if your CHD was passed down from
a family member? Are you concerned that your children have a higher risk
of having CHD than the children of your friends? If so, you will want to attend this webinar. Dr.
Stephanie Ware, Professor of Pediatrics and a clinical geneticist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital,
will talk about common genetic disorders that are linked to CHD, how they are diagnosed, and
what the benefits and limitations are in the adult congenital heart setting. She will also discuss
risk, medical decision making and the likelihood of having a child with CHD.
This webinar was made possible in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Actelion.
