About the Virtual Empowerment Symposium
While we are disappointed we will not be gathering in-person this July for our 9th National Conference, which has been postponed to June 2022, we are thrilled we will still be able to gather virtually! With that in mind, our Virtual Empowerment Symposium has been created as a live one-day opportunity for patients, family members and medical providers to come together to learn about CHD from the experts and from each other. The day will include information sessions as well as breakout rooms and opportunities to engage with members of the CHD community. Learn more about what we will be focusing on in the schedule below.
At ACHA, we understand it is an expense and a commitment to travel to one of our in-person conferences—so we hope that through this one-day, low-cost virtual gathering, even more of you can join us from the comfort of your own home to take part in the community of an ACHA event! Plus, you will experience the caliber of speakers and presentations that attendees have come to expect at our conferences. Please note our virtual symposium should be attended live, as we do not plan on archiving this interactive event.
Who Should Attend
ACHA encourages ACHD patients, family members, teens and young adults diagnosed with congenital heart disease to attend the conference. We also invite ACHD doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, social workers, nurses, fellows and residents to attend as well.
