2014 7th National Conference

Thank you to our 500+ attendees for joining us in Chicago!

The 2014 Adult Congenital Heart Association’s 7th National Conference, Translating Quality of Care into Quality of Life, offers the unique opportunity of uniting the adult congenital heart community – patients, family members, researchers, and healthcare providers – in one location to share the best in ACHD research and resources. We’re looking forward to you joining us September 5-7 in Chicago to celebrate our accomplishments and plan for the future of ACHD care.

The conference offers three overlapping educational tracks – the Patient/Family Conference, the Research Symposium, and the Health Professionals Conference – which meet separately and in plenary sessions throughout the weekend. There will be plenty of time to attend sessions, to network, to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and to enjoy the many attractions that Chicago offers, too. The site of this year’s conference, the Chicago Mart Plaza Hotel, provides some of the best views of the city of Chicago. Located in the downtown River North area, the hotel is also near some of the city's best sights and sounds.

We look forward to seeing you and your family in Chicago in September! Please visit this webpage for more information as it becomes available.
