The ACHA Tennessee Regional Conference is an educational and networking event to learn more about thriving with Adult Congenital Heart Disease. The format for this conference is new: A half day of educational presentations, followed by social and networking activities. There will be many opportunities to connect with others with CHD.

It is a dynamic partnership between the Adult Congenital Heart Association and Vanderbilt University Medical Center. We invite patients, family members, friends, and healthcare professionals to spend the morning learning about specialized lifelong care for adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) from experts in ACHD and the afternoon meeting and connecting with your ACHD peers.

Please join us on Saturday, April 29, 2023. Registration and continental breakfast begin at 8 a.m. CDT. The educational program is from 9 a.m. CDT until 12 p.m. CDT. After the presentations, we will adjourn to Centennial Park for a picnic lunch and games, and a chance to meet others with CHD.

Registration for patients, family members, and friends is $25. If you register by midnight on April 12, 2023, you will receive a $5 discount. This includes continental breakfast and lunch, as well as admission to all sessions. If you registered for the postponed conference in October 2022, you do not need to register again. Registration will close at midnight CDT, Wednesday, April 19, 2023.
