The Fetal Heart Society: Facilitating Multidisciplinary Collaborative Fetal Cardiovascular Research

Authors: Alfred Abuhamad, Mary T. Donofrio * and On behalf of the Fetal Heart Society Governing Board and Steering Committee

disciplines. In order to expand knowledge and discovery, a
structured organization which fosters multidisciplinary research
collaboration across institutions is needed.

• The newly formed Fetal Heart Society is a non-profit multidisciplinary
research organization with an overarching goal of advancing the
field of fetal cardiovascular care and science through collaborative
research, education, and mentorship.
