In honor of Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week, SCAI's public education website, SecondsCount.org, is featuring a series of articles for children and adults with congenital heart defects as well as their families and other caregivers. The new materials were developed by SecondsCount editors, with input from the patient advocacy group Mended Little Hearts. Topics focus on questions patients and families often ask, such as strategies for success in school, participation in sports, pregnancy, obtaining medical records, and health insurance. Access them on www.SecondsCount.org, and watch for updates on Facebook and Twitter. Search on #CHD and #CHDAware.
