Education Forum 2020

The Brave Heart Way - Holistic Wellbeing for Those Living with CHD.

Heart Kids is the only organisation in New Zealand that provides life-long support to those living with congenital / childhood heart conditions (CHD). Our national Education Forum provides information, tools and strategies that guide and empower our Brave Hearts and their whānau on their unique heart journeys. 

There will be a mix of topical keynote speakers, panel discussions, workshops and the opportunity to network. The goal is to bring people together in one place where they can discover, share, build relationships and leave enriched and empowered knowing they are part of an inclusive and caring community. 

The focus is on Holistic Wellbeing, an approach to life that emphasises the connection of mind, body and spirit. Specifically, we are covering topics such as PTSD and how to mitigate it for heart kids and their whānau. An important aspect of every Heart Kids Education Forum is the update on current medical research, advances and trends in paediatric and adult cardiology. At the end of the two-day Forum, attendees of all ages will have gained new knowledge, shared stories and made lasting friendships with others who walk the path of the Brave Heart.
