February 7-14, 2017 is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week!
Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week promotes awareness about congenital heart defects (CHDs). CHDs are the most common birth defect – affecting nearly one in 100 births every year in the United States. Heart defects are lifelong conditions. About 1 million children and 1.4 million adults in the United States were living with a CHD in 2010.
Join CDC in this nationwide effort to raise awareness of heart defects, their causes, and their impact.
