The ACHA Discussion Forum is Now Our New Online Community

Posted Friday, Feb 15, 2019

We are excited to launch our new Online Community, which provides our members with opportunities to connect with one another and ACHA! All information from the previous Discussion Forum you've known for years has been transferred to our new Online Community, including usernames and passwords. If you’ve registered previously, all you need to do is log in. Access to the Online Community is a benefit of ACHA membership, which as you know, is free for patients and family members. Anyone can become a member by clicking here.

The forum portion of the Online Community is organized into defect- and topic-specific discussion for patients, while also offering forums for parents and caregivers, spouses and significant others, siblings, and those who have lost a loved one. There are also age-specific forums, including one for teens and college-age/young adults. Additional new features include a community calendar, private messaging, regional groups, and mobile optimization, so you can access all of these same features on any device, at any time.

You can learn more about our Online Community by watching this brief tutorial. We hope you enjoy this new and updated ACHA offering!
