Aortic Dissection Survivor Support Group

The Hoag Aortic Dissection Support Group provides mutual emotional support and information for thoracic aortic dissection survivors, their families and support network. By sharing personal experiences, concerns, coping strategies and triumphs, survivors and their loved ones will know they are not alone and that others understand what they are going through. This group is facilitated by a licensed nurse practitioner and genetic counselor from the Elaine & Robert Matranga Aortic Center.

Please note, this group is intended for thoracic aortic dissection survivors. For patients living with a thoracic aortic aneurysm, please join the Hoag Living with an Aortic Aneurysm Support Group.

This group will be held virtually via Zoom. Instructions on how to access Zoom and meeting login details will be provided through email confirmation, once participants have completed the registration process.
