)-- The Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndromes (SADS) Foundation hosted its most successful 6th Annual International Conference last week to educate families and professionals in the medical field about how to prevent unexpected sudden death in the young.
The SADS Foundation is an organization dedicated to saving lives and supporting families of children and young adults who are predisposed to sudden death due to heart abnormalities. The Foundation provides information, support and hope to thousands of families with children living with the health threat and is a leader in education, research and advocacy for people with genetic heart arrhythmias that can cause sudden deaths.
Hosted at the Marriott University Park Hotel by the University of Utah, the conference was one more significant step towards achieving the SADS Foundation’s goal of increasing the awareness of heart abnormalities for families and medical professionals. “We couldn’t have done this without the help of our devoted sponsors, volunteers, staff members, and the community,” says VP of Development and Marketing Laura Wall. “It was really inspiring to see everyone come together with passion to support a great cause.”
