June 1-3, 2017

The Adult Congenital Heart Association is hosting a Research Room in conjunction with the 8th National Conference in Orlando, June 1-3, 2017.  This opportunity gives researchers access to a large gathering of adults with congenital heart disease to enroll into studies and collect data.  Recommended projects are those that are survey-based and/or require samples collections (saliva/blood/urine).  This is a great opportunity to share research that is going on at your institution and to advance research in ACHD.
