​​"St​ay Strong. Stay in Care" Campaign

"Stay Strong. Stay in Care" is a campaign from the Congenital Heart Public Health Consortium (CHPHC) designed to encourage people with congenital heart defects (CHDs) to stay strong by staying in care. A goal of the campaign is to show that anyone with CHD can accomplish great things, despite their medical condition. However, it's important to stay strong and healthy in order to achieve these goals, and a congenital cardiologist plays a key role in helping individuals with CHDs stay strong and healthy.  ​

Join us April 10th – 13th as we join people living with a CHD in living longer, more productive lives. At the same time, help us remind everyone that surgery and interventions as a child are not a cure for CHD. Tell us how staying in care made you stronger and healthier.

The Stay Strong. Stay in Care campaign is sponsored by the CHPHC, a group of organizations and individuals that have united their resources in an effort to prevent congenital heart defects and improve the lives of those adults and children affected by the disease. Access additional information about lifelong care for people living with CHD on the website. 

Not everyone living with congenital heart disease will be able to compete in an IRONMAN event like David Watkins of the Ironheart Foundation; pictured above. However, staying in congenital cardiology care throughout your lifetime will help you stay healthy so you can accomplish the goals you set out for your life.
