Conquering CHD's mission is to “Conquer Congenital Heart Disease.”

We are accomplishing this through collaboration with patients, families, providers, and partner organizations to improve quality and outcomes through CHD education, support, research and awareness.

Through our State Chapter Program we are able to give knowledge, give a voice and give hope, directly meeting the comprehensive, lifelong needs of patients with congenital heart disease and their families through support, education, advocacy and research programming.
