Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center will host its fifth annual Adult Congenital Heart Symposium for patients, families and physicians on Saturday, Oct. 12.
“For the first time in history, patients born with congenital heart disease are surviving and even thriving in adulthood, many with a normal life expectancy. We have made great strides in the management of the disease,” said C. Huie Lin, M.D., an adult congenital interventional cardiologist and the head of the Houston Methodist Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program. “This symposium will not only give them a chance to learn about innovative treatment options, but will they can also meet other patients who are dealing with the same issues.”
Patients and their families will hear lessons and tips from adult congenital heart experts from around the country. There will also be several hands-on components, including a CPR class and the opportunity to work with valve devices and simulators at the state-of-the-art Houston Methodist Institute for Training, Innovation & Education (MITIE). The Symposium will also give attendees the opportunity to network with physicians and exhibitors.
The event will be held at the Houston Methodist Research Institute, located at 6670 Bertner Ave. in the Texas Medical Center.
