Let’s come together to prevent sudden death. Children’s National invites you to attend a collaborative conference to prevent Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS). This dynamic half-day session will bring together providers from throughout the region to foster conversation, share knowledge and grow awareness of SADS.

The Cardiogenetics Symposium is a free, interactive symposium for adult and pediatric providers to raise awareness and understanding of inherited arrhythmias and prevention of sudden death.  It offers a multi-disciplinary, family-centered approach to recognizing and caring for inherited arrhythmia syndromes.
