Annual Education Event
“Family Connect” is an annual event hosted by CHD Families of Tucson with the goal of facilitating conversation between pediatric cardiologists, surgeons, and specialists, and the community they serve. Practitioners are invited to sit on a panel and answer crowd-sourced questions about care philosophy, future goals, and current standards of care. In 2018 and 2019, the panel discussion was moderated by Alex Steineger from KGUN 9, and hosted at the Children’s Museum of Tucson.
