Partnership4CHD Program

About our Program:

Our team includes specialists at UVM in Pediatric Cardiology, Dr. Flyer and Dr. Haxel, Pediatric Psychology, Dr. Hughes Lansing, and Pediatric Cardiology Nursing, who are working to build better support programs for families navigating a fetal congenital heart disease (CHD) diagnosis. Our first step in our program development is learning more from our families about their experiences. Read on below to learn about our current study and advisory committees as well as find resources for navigating a fetal CHD diagnosis and accessing support for perinatal mental health.

Families living with CHD- Community Advisory Studios

If you are a family with a child with CHD or who had a recent experience with fetal CHD diagnoses and would like to participate in community advisory events with our team, please email us at Partnership4CHD@uvm.edu. We expect to host more community advisory studios with our families with lived experience in Winter 2023!
