Fontan Education Day 2016 - Auckland
Fontan Education Day 2016 Summary
Our third annual Fontan Education Day was held on 11 September 2016 at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. This event was attended by 150 Fontan participants, their families, cardiac specialists and researchers. Like previous years, this was a wonderful opportunity for families to connect, and hear about the most recent research results from the Fontan Registry. Highlights included a detailed outline of the Fontan procedure 'plumbing', results from our liver renal research project, lived experiences and the journey of the Father of a Fontan child, and in-depth break-out sessions which gave people the opportunity to explore topics further. The day was very well received and we've had lots of positive feedback! Thank you to our wonderful Auckland team and the planning committee for their exceptional efforts in pulling off another great event!
