4th International Conference on Cardiomyopathy in Children

The 4 th International Conference on Cardiomyopathy in Children was held on May 18-19 in Bethesda, Maryland. Nearly 60 leading researchers and clinicians convened to exchange ideas on pediatric cardiomyopathy, heart failure, and heart transplantation. A video highlighting three cardiomyopathy families was shown. Conference proceedings will be published in Progress in Pediatric Cardiology Fall 2017.

Find an AED, Save a Life

Research indicates that accessible automated external defibrillators (AED) can save lives. CCF's AED Scavenger Hunt calls attention to the importance of quickly locating an AED during a cardiac emergency. Participation is easy: find an AED, take a selfie with the AED, and then post the photo with #ProtectKidsHearts, including your state and AED location, on social media outlets such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @ccfheartkids.

Golf for a Cure

CCF's popular golf outing will take place on
July 24 
at the historic Montclair Golf Club in West Orange, New Jersey. Last year, more than 200 attendees teed-off for a cure, and 55 sponsors contributed to support pediatric cardiomyopathy research and education.
