The American Heart Association recently hosted an event for children with congenital heart defects and their families to come together for fun activities, support, and networking. The event included heart healthy snacks, fun activities like face painting, crafts, games, and more. Kids came by the Advocacy Table to play instruments and draw pictures on petitions asking the Connecticut Public Health Commissioner to support mandatory Pulse Oximetry testing on all newborns. The test is a noninvasive tool to diagnose critical congenital heart disease.
