Federal funding to support people with CHD across the lifespan is on this year’s congressional agenda. The bipartisan Congenital Heart Futures Reauthorization Act of 2024 (CHFRA) will reauthorize CHD research, surveillance, and public education programs at the CDC through 2029 and seek to address the workforce shortages impacting the adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) care provider community.
Co-hosted by ACHA, The Children’s Heart Foundation, Conquering CHD, and Mended Little Hearts, this webinar will explain what’s at stake in 2024, what’s new with CHFRA since its last reauthorization in 2017-18, and how our community can work together to get CHFRA across the finish line. Speakers representing ACHA, the offices of our congressional champions, and other leading CHD organizations will arm you with the information and tools you’ll need to advocate for the next generation of CHD patients.
