Welcome to Conquering CHD - Wisconsin


Conquering CHD'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 Conquering CHD - Wisconsin chapter is a program of Conquering CHD, 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 Honor Roll Award for outstanding performance in support of our mission.
