Welcome to Conquering CHD - Louisiana

 

At Conquering CHD - Louisiana, we exist to conquer the most common birth defect. We engage, listen, learn, and act. We create visibility and empower all impacted by CHD. We accomplish this through awareness, knowledge, community, and research.

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 awareness, knowledge, community, 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
