CHD stands for congenital heart disease, a structural abnormality of the heart or its function that occurs at birth with chronic secondary complications that can last throughout life.
It occurs in nearly 1 in 100 births.
Each year approximately 40,000 babies are born with CHD in the U.S., that’s 1 every 15 minutes.
We hope to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of congenital heart defects for children!
