Welcome to PCHA - Kentucky

The Pediatric Congenital Heart Association’s mission is to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.” We are accomplishing this through collaboration with patients, parents, providers, and partner organizations to improve quality and outcomes through CHD education, support, research and awareness.

The PCHA-KY chapter is a program of PCHA, aimed at improving the lives of those with congenital heart disease and their families through direct support and education – meeting families where they are.

*This State Chapter has received the 2019 Excellence Award  for outstanding performance in  support of our mission.

 

About Us

Through our State Chapters we are able to give knowledge, give a voice and give hope, directly meeting the comprehensive, lifelong needs of patients with congenital heart disease and their families through support, education, advocacy and research programming.

Local activities include:

  • Conquering CHD Kits offering critical information and a personal connection for patients with CHD of all ages through individualized care packages
  • Online chat networks bringing people with similar experiences together
  • In-person peer support offering patients and families encouragement and insight from someone who has walked a similar path
  • Social events providing a safe environment to celebrate life and simple joys together
  • Physician education improving understanding of congenital heart disease from the patient and family perspective
  • Research promotion and participation helping promising developments become reality
  • Advocacy activities sharing our stories to improve federal research funding
