One of the goals for the
Congenital Heart Disease Information and Resources web
site is to develop a sense of community among families
and health care professionals. We seek to create an
environment in which we can all work together toward a
common goal: to develop much needed information and
resources for families and adults with CHD. There is a
great deal we can learn from each other.
What you see
within these pages represents only a beginning. We have
been encouraged by the response thus far, and look
forward to increased participation in the future.
The features and resources on this site reflect a
collaborative effort among our readers. In that regard,
we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of
the people who have so generously donated their time,
talents, and ideas.
