Parading down Peachtree!

I’m heading back to Atlanta!

And no, this is not for my usual check-up – though I will have one of those in August. This time I’ll be heading down on Halloween Weekend for the American Heart Association’s annual Heart Walk! Emory University Hospital is putting a team together for the walk and my docs in the Adult Congenital Heart Defect Clinic are gathering a “Mini-Team” of their patients. So I was asked if I could attend and unless something comes up, I AM IN!

Good medical care by Adult Congenital Cardiologists is so very important to someone with a Congenital Heart Defect (CHD).” Regular” Adult Cardiologists can’t handle us: they are trained to take care of patients with clogged arteries, too much Cholesterol, or recovering from heart attacks. We need a Cardiologist who is trained to take care of an adult with a CHD, and Emory is one of the few places in the United States that offer this service.

So if you are an Adult CHDer in the Atlanta area (or about to become one!) register for the heart walk and join us at Turner Field on Saturday, October 30, at 8:00 AM!
