Congenital heart disease is a lifelong disease known to be accompanied by periods of anxiety and depression. Over the past 3 years, the COVID pandemic has increased health-related anxiety across the globe.

This presentation is part of the Heart Center’s Heartfelt Dreams Foundation Expanding the Medical World webinar series.
