Heart & Vascular

Cardiovascular Connective Tissue Disorder Support

Cardiovascular connective tissue disorders are rare. Most people have never heard of conditions such as Marfan syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome and Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndromes. The Hoag Cardiovascular Connective Tissue Disorder Support Group provides an opportunity for patients living with a cardiovascular connective tissue disorder, their families and support network to connect. Discussion is focused on personal experiences, concerns, coping strategies and triumphs to reinforce education and decrease anxiety about living with a cardiovascular connective tissue disorder. This support group is facilitated by a clinical nurse navigator and genetic counselor from the Elaine & Robert Matranga Aortic Center.

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.
